1) The setting is particularly vivid, particularly in regards to Martin’s living space. I can picture his home perfectly, from the rainbow lantern out front to the paintings turned to face the wall despite the perfect lighting, and attention is also paid to how the house changes along with Martin and Andre’s relationship. The house is almost a character on its own, which makes the ending all the sweeter. Miami itself is equally vivid, if painted in slightly broader strokes, while other locations such as Andre’s initial apartment or Van Laar’s creepy mansion are given details that wonderfully enhance the mood of their involved scenes. While technically the paintings are more setting-accessories than a location on their own, they also bring life and character to any scene they occupy. The paintings reveal more than the characters themselves let on, like the hint of a whimsical nature in Martin’s style or the implied liminal states that Andre exists in as he finds his place in Miami. The evolution of these paintings reflect the emotional arc of the narrative, showcasing the stakes of the climax with Martin’s self-portrait.

When up-and-coming Miami painter Martin Fonseca encounters youthful pretty boy Andre Bellamy washing dishes in the kitchen of La Candela, he swears he’s known him before, intimately. But Andre only arrived in Miami weeks ago, after running away from small-town Alabama and his abusive father. When Martin discovers Andre trading sexual favors for a place to stay, he offers him a room in his studio apartment. As roommates only.

What starts as a playful friendship turns into something more as Andre begins posing for Martin, whose true passion is painting fantastical portraits. Martin’s obsession with Andre grows until they are sharing more than just flirtatious conversation. But when an eccentric art collector buys one of Martin’s paintings, Martin’s past jealousies resurface and threaten to destroy what he and Andre have so lovingly built.
