Y’all know me, I love gay shit… movies, series, what have you! So, when I heard about In From The Side – an indie flick about an affair between two members of a London gay rugby club – I was pretty ecstatic.
Anyways, now I’m obsessed with the lead, Alexander Lincoln, who plays Mark. Mark is a young gay guy who plays for the B team in a London rugby club. When he meets Warren (Alexander King), the two begin a secret affair despite both having partners already.
The film is really great, and explores forbidden love and modern male relationships in a really interesting way. Also, I just can’t get over the character of Mark (he’s handsome yet broken in the most adorable way 😍😭🥵). Allow me to bring you in on my obsession with these 27 pics.
Okay, so, here he is answering a door and looking like butter wouldn’t melt.
Here he is doing a little yawn.
And then walking away and giving a cheeky little smile.
UGH, look at him on the field. Mmm-mmmm.
I wanna be that mouthguard.
Even in a plain grey tee he looks AMAZING.
OMG I want a man (Mark) to wait on a tube platform for me like this.
Who even walks into a room looking that TASTY?!?
I totally get why you’d do that.
OMG look at him in his little hat, AHHHHHHH!
Here he is showing Warren a polaroid he took of him.
That “do-you-like-the-picture-I-did-of-you” look on his face is just 😍😭😍😭😍😭😍😭😍😭😍😭😍😭!
I, too, would stare at myself in the mirror if I looked like Mark.
#WorriedMark. He looks so helpless! He needs reassuring hugs pronto.
Oh no, why is Mark alone in the club?? Someone please rescue him.
Tbf, I get why he’d be confused that someone is leaving him alone in bed.
This “you-better-do-me-right-now” look is doing things to me.
I can’t even speak about this.
Don’t cry, Mark, I love you!
Even when he’s like, “I can’t deal with this shit”, he’s sooooo beautiful.
Holy turtleneck fantasy… I’m sorry, but I can’t deal with the fact that a human looks like this.
I envy the man who gets to stroke Mark’s head.
OMG look at his laugh… He’s the cutest man to walk the planet.
OMG the after-game shirt and tie combo is working for me.
So, yeah, basically, Alex I am free on Thursday night if you want to hang out. Please read this and then let me know if you want to hang out on Thursday night when I am free. (But you have to come in character as Mark).
Also, it really is a testament to this film that I got so many high quality pics just from screen-shotting! In From The Side is out now in cinemas in the UK and Ireland. We’ll keep you updated on where you can stream it! Let me know if you also develop a Mark crush in the comments below <3.
