Description: This bold feature homes in on the confused world of its 19-year-old hero, Ari. Over a 24-hour period he confronts both his sexuality and his Greek background. Uncompromising and dynamic, pic, adapted from the book LOADED by Christos Tsiolkas, is bound to provoke debate and perhaps even censorship problems, but the filmmaker's honesty and compassion should guarantee solid reviews. Ari is obsessed with sex, and has several sexual encounters during the film's brief time span, most of them gay, through he does make a half-hearted attempt to fulfill the sister of one of his best friends. At the same time, he's facing problems with his traditional Greek parents, who have no clue about his sexual - and drug taking - activities.
