Punch Trailer Has Aspiring Boxer Navigating Love and Homophobia



In sports, sexual orientation prevents many people from achieving success. For one young man, he learns about the hindrance of his sexual orientation toward his boxing dreams in the narrative drama Punch.

The film stars former Academy Award nominee Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight), Jordan Oosterhof (The Cul De Sac), and Conan Hayes (Sweet Tooth). Welby Ings makes his feature film directorial debut from a story he wrote.

Here is the official synopsis:

Jim is a promising teenage boxer, training under the watch of his demanding and alcoholic father. When Jim develops a relationship with a male classmate, the two are forced to navigate isolation, homophobia, and the brutality of small-town life. As Jim discovers what it means to be gay, he realizes how little strength has to do with heroism.

Although Tim Roth’s name is attached to this film as the abusive father and boxing coach, the focus is probably more on the relationship between Jim (Jordan Oosterhof) and Whetu (Conan Hayes). It sounds like a coming-of-age story about gay love and the questioning of his pursuit of glory in boxing—particularly for his father’s dream.

Nonetheless, this should be a good drama for those who like this genre.

Punch is in select theaters, digitally, and On Demand on March 10. It follows up with a DVD release on April 11.
