“More Than Only” is a romanctic dramedy about Justin Johnson, a young college student with father issues, who falls head over heels for the guarded Michael. Justin does everything in his power to get a first date, but Michael won’t agree to go out until Justin can jump through three major hoops. The tasks are impossible. Or are they?
Why It’s a Gem:
This is an unabashedly old-fashioned love story designed for the modern age. Jonathan Miles gives Justin a heartwarming vulnerability, even as he indulges in self-destructive behaviors from time to time. From the meet cute scene in the hospital to an adventure at an amusement park, “More Than Only” takes us on a whirlwind journey of these characters’ lives, from the awkwardness of their first meeting to the joy of a more profound relationship.
