Chet and Todd are estranged gay brothers who grew up in a small town in Central California. While bad boy Todd ran off to Los Angeles and is now out and proud, Chet stayed at home (and mostly closeted) to run the family store and to care for their dying father. When Todd returns home broke and homeless, long-simmering resentments boil to the surface as the brothers confront their differences and similarities.

Tiger Orange is a generally quiet, small town queer drama, much like the film Pit Stop. The film looks good and is adequately acted.

The story feels believable even with a sort of gimmick of two gay brothers, one an I'll-do-what-I-want rebel and the other a do-what-needs-done good son.

The character of the good son nails the small town gay man who is single and avoids drawing attention to himself. The rebel son is something of a shallow character and though he definitely seems realistic there's little to like about him, the only reason to even care about the character is he's important to the good son.

Tiger Orange's greatest shortcoming is it runs a bit long. two thirds into the film I was losing interest and when the film ended I realized I'd only half paid attention to the final scenes. Still, I'd rather have quite believably than melodrama that feels tacked on for the sake of spicing things up.

It's worth watching if you're a fan of queer film and it's definitely than a lot of queer film options.

A not glib, myopic, offensively simplistic take on sexual identity & personal transformation, putting this one solidly in the W column for American gay cinema. You'll still have to deal with some annoying stereotypes, like the conveniently perfect boyfriend candidate, or the tendentiously & confrontationally sexual himbo, & there were a few choices in the script that were a little cringe-worthy. But for taking on gay life in a small town with a little humor & sympathy, & keeping the focus on the characters as whole people for the most part, I found the thing pretty watchable. CR

This is a pretty good movie about pretty normal people dealing with issues of family, dating and getting on with life. If you liked the description above of this movie you'll like the movie.
