Of her role, Gill said, “My time working on Love, Colin, produced by the incredible creative teams of Cthulhu Crush Productions and Red Castle Films, was full of many refreshing and invigorating acting moments. With sensitive direction from Steve Parker, I enjoyed extremely interesting character discussions and development with the talented cast.”?Parker added, “Ultimately this film is a sensitive treatment of a confusing moment in life, where a boy must find his own voice.”
When Colin’s (Lubczyk) half-brother Zac (Daulby) returns to live with him, there’s a chance for him to rebuild a family bond. But in his absence, Colin has started to find other boys attractive. Colin’s mother, Jennifer (Gill), notices and Colin must grapple with the feelings of his newly restored family and the kind of love he finally wants for himself.
