Synopsis:
To celebrate the start of summer, handsome 17-year-old Miku (Mikko Kauppila) throws a wild party at his parent s house, which turns destructive quickly. As punishment, Miku is forced to spend the rest of his summer with his family at their secluded country cottage. There, Miku meets the confident, magnetic Elias (Valtteri Lehtinen). The two spend their summer inseparable, discovering themselves, their sexuality and each other. But with an intense holiday romance comes the inevitable spectre of separation, and, as the summer comes to a close, the boys will have to face the realities of potential heartbreak head on.
Equal part erotic summer romance and moving portrait of teen angst, 'Screwed' is both stirring and affecting.

Finish Awakening - Screwed review by KW

Spoiler Alert
12/05/2018

Interesting film about the growing up of MIKU who gets dropped in it by his elder brother and is forced to have to spend the summer with his parents at the their country home and where he meets ELIAS. A friendship develops between the two of them but lurking in the background are issues related to ELIAS and the film then handles MIKU's acceptance of them that ultimately leads to telling his parents of his sexuality. Interesting film in parts, at times I felt it was close to losing its way, but the acting of the cast carried it through. Not a classic but watchable.

Mature LGBT Movie - Screwed review by WH

Spoiler Alert
26/06/2018

LGBT ' coming out' movies have progressed mightily from the doom and gloom - 'You'll die in hell' phase. And this movie beautifully illustrates that point. The two leading actors are brilliant in their portrayal of young people coming to realise their sexuality. Their parents react exactly how parents of gay offspring should react when their child confirms their sexuality. And above all- this movie has a very happy ending! No more end of life angst- or hate-fuelled homophobic mob. Cannot recommend this movie too highly. You will mightily enjoy!

A worthy watch! - Screwed review by TB

Spoiler Alert
20/08/2018

Unlike some LGBT movies, this wasn’t just focused on the two lead characters as it also featured and built in the lives of others (parents, siblings, etc) to give the movie a more fuller feel to it and to make it more a film about relationships and family struggles, and not just a gay relationship. The acting by some of the characters wasn’t brilliant, especially the awkward looking father of Miku. However, Miku’s performance was the shining performance and I liked the way the film built to a point of sexual awakening and desire between two ultimately different people. A summer love story or should that be lust story!
