It is true that reading David Sadaris, "Naked" is funnier than viewing this film adaptation but this movie holds its own very well as a gripping coming of age story.

From the beginning the story flows well and is understandable.There are moments of intense, touching feelings for Samuel (David's taken on name) as he expands his experiences after graduate school by picking apples at a small Oregon farm and then in a factory. His struggles as a gay man in a very straight and often homophobic culture are readily apparent and very moving, especially in the last scene as he is betrayed and then rejected by a "would be" Christian rescuer who has obvious problems. This film is worth seeing. Expand

I sort of like sadaris, but this movie is honestly one of the worst I have ever seen. The story has all the depth of a mud puddle, stereotypical rich kid goes to the farm, with a twist that would have been groundbreaking circa 1922. I watched this with a group of people, and we all looked around as the movie ended with a collective, wtf was that. I can't believe anyone would rate this above a 3, unless they did not want to insult sadaris, or giving it a pass cause liking indie films makes you hip. Save yourself and skip Expand
