Role/Play is a romantic drama from 2010 directed by Rob Williams, starring Steve Callahan, Matthew Montgomery, and David Pevsner. The film explores the interplay between passion and identity as two men from different worlds fall in love. In the film, Callahan plays Graham Windsor, a famous actor who is about to start shooting his next movie. He is openly gay and has a reputation of being a ladies' man. Montgomery, on the other hand, plays Trey Reed, a recently discharged soldier who is struggling to come to terms with his sexuality.

The two men meet by chance at a luxury hotel, where Trey is staying with his girlfriend. Graham is immediately captivated by Trey and offers him a role in his upcoming movie. Trey, however, is not interested and tries to keep his distance, but Graham persists and they end up spending the evening together.

As the night unfolds, Graham and Trey engage in a passionate affair that challenges them both. Graham's carefree lifestyle clashes with Trey's conservative values, and the two men struggle to reconcile their differences. Meanwhile, Trey's girlfriend suspects that something is going on between them and confronts Trey about his feelings.

The movie explores themes of identity, self-discovery, and the power of love. Graham and Trey are both searching for something more in their lives, and their emotional connection forces them to confront their deepest desires.

One of the most striking aspects of the film is its visual style. The movie is set almost entirely inside the luxurious hotel room, which is beautifully decorated with warm, inviting colors. The camera work is intimate and personal, drawing the audience into the characters' emotions and experiences.

The performances from Callahan and Montgomery are also excellent. Callahan is convincing as the suave, sophisticated actor who is used to getting what he wants. He brings a vulnerability to the role that makes Graham feel like a fully realized character rather than a caricature. Montgomery, on the other hand, balances Trey's confusion and vulnerability with his fierce determination to be true to himself.

Pevsner plays a supporting role as a hotel employee who gets caught up in Graham and Trey's affair. He brings a comedic energy to the film, providing moments of levity in an otherwise intense story.

Overall, Role/Play is a thoughtful, poignant exploration of love, desire, and self-discovery. It challenges the audience to consider their own identities and the forces that shape who we are. The film is well-written, well-acted, and beautifully shot, making it a must-see for fans of romantic dramas.

Role/Play is a 2010 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 25 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3.
