The magic of Ronny and i is in the minimal production. The actors are the film crew, and the camera is an iPhone 5. It’s as though a guy encounters a bizarre place in life and decides that he’s going to record the next couple of days with his phone.
It works amazingly well.
But wait, there’s more magic. The guy with the phone just broke up with his girl friend and informs his life-long best friend that he’s actually in love with him. One often wonders exactly how this kind of a predicament would play out between life-long best buddy guys — especially guys who for all intents were sort of heterosexual and liked gals and not dudes.
Watch Ronny & i and you’ll see how it goes. There is a fun-filled couple of days, some cool music and shots that frankly gave me a lump in my throat. But I’m a sucker for feel good stuff.
Ronny & i is about life-long friendship. It’s about friendship that isn’t shaken by a sudden change in affection. For these friends, it isn’t a difficult thing for a best friend to not only remain a best friend but become a part of his buddy’s new sexuality.
