From director Spencer Schilly (Summer Thunder) The Houseboy is fearlessly raw yet surprisingly tender. Aimless and barely in his twenties, disarmingly cute Ricky is content to play boy toy to a pair of hot thirty-something lovers. That is until he overhears them whisper about "a new toy for Christmas." Crushed and totally alone while his couple vacations, Ricky binges on internet hookups, random tricks, and hardcore drugs. Unable to kill the pain, Ricky contemplates the end. But a chance meeting with Blake, a sweetheart college kid with a thousand watt smile, makes Ricky wonder if there's something to live for after all.
