“Tonight It’s Me”
A Surprise Friendship
A hot young hustler finds himself in uncharted waters when he spends the night with a client who’s far from the “johns” he’s used to servicing. Director Dominic Haxton introduces us to CJ (Jake Robbins) is a hustler in Los Angeles who is a hustler and used to having sleazy older men pay him for sex and treat him like a piece of meat.
Things take an unexpected turn when Ash hires him. Ash is CJ’s age, transsexual and is looking for company as much as sex. CJ isn’t sure how to react to someone who doesn’t fit into the typical gender binary but he soon finds his horizons being broadened. This is something of an odd film that is nonetheless very sweet and we watch two disconnected souls come together and find common ground, even though their experience of life is very different. It’s well worth watching and makes us think about the way we are influenced by those that we met.
