The story of Breakfast With Scott deals with a gay couple, who suddenly find themselves playing the role of
co-parents to a boy who shows every indication of growing up gay. The film allows us to watch their
development as dads. Just as important, though, we get to see how this fascinating boy also helps the couple
to relate to each other in a deeper and more open manner.
This is a film of self-awareness, discovery and openness. It is assembled with yeomanlike details.
While an independent film, it has the feel of a Hollywood major studio–with all that is good and bad about
that. It takes no risks, so its success seems less than it might have been.
