The Hollywood Reporter says:
The horse ranches and honky-tonks of California’s Central Valley
might seem an unlikely setting for a movie about
a long-term gay relationship, but that’s one of the key points of Perfect Cowboy
which locates uncharted territory in familiar terrain.
PERFECT COWBOY is a community-based film.
The locations and housing are donated. The full-time actors are working for deferred pay.
The community horse riders, clog dancers, choir, handbell choir, university musical theater performers,
musicians and extras are all donating their time, truly investing in the success of this project.
This alternative family film is about Jimmy Poole and The Poole Boys,
a rural country western band fronted by two gay fathers.
Raising a heterosexual son who is trying to make his own mark in the music industry,
Jimmy struggles with addiction while Ty tries desperately to stop his family from falling apart. In the end,
their collective love for making music is the only thing that can keep them together.

Perfect Cowboy covers a lot of ground, including the negative influence
of Christian extremism…, the definition of family, the road to recovery,
healing and forgiveness, and the opportunity to begin again.
For those reasons alone, Perfect Cowboy is recommended viewing.
