Set on the sun-drenched Bahaman islands, Children of God is an award-winning love story. Blond-haired, blue-eyed Jonny travels to the island of Eleuthera intent on finding some artistic inspiration. After arriving he meets the confident, attractive black musician Romeo and it is instantly clear that there is a spark between them. Although Romeo has a fiance he has secretly played with the boys on the side before, but Johnny is not just any boy and soon their relationship becomes far more complex than a simple fling. Struggling to overcome rampant homophobia and anti-gay crusade erupting around them, it is going to take more than wishful thinking for their love to last. A beautifully shot, captivating romance; Children of God paints a universally relevant portrait of desire, sexual conflict, tolerance, and self-acceptance.

  • I suspect that ‘Children of God’ is a “message” film for local consumption in the Bahamas seeing that it was only made in 2010. However, it is well made. It is about finding love in the midst of homophobia. The dialogue is a little heavy-handed at times and clichéd but those slight faults are overcome by a genuineness that comes from the actors and director.

  • I'm fairly over gay movies with the gay guy dying @ the end... there's no excuse for homophobia OR violence against gay men or lesbians!!!! The redeeming feature (as if we needed one) in this movie is he learnt how to "feel"... you're missing a profound experience especially if you're a guy if you choose NOT to watch this one str8/bi/gay

  • I enjoyed this movie. Had the tissues out at one stage.

  • good movie set in the Bahamas, cute little blondie

  • The premise of this movie is great; social mores moulded by religious zealotry, homophobia, adultery, and self hate. This movie has it all. Reasonably acted, though the main character took some time to warm to. Worth watching.
