a MUST GO for anyone interested in gay relationships
the story of two new york gay men in the late 90's is fiercely accurate, poignant and ultimately a story larger than the sexuality of its characters. this film begins with beautiful imagery, a remarkable soundtrack and then, the story...the story is incredibly delicate in its handling of very serious matters, including hiv scares, pre-online dating, drug use and abuse, along with the normal relationship gymnastics everyone must address. the film is beautiful, with its use of a grainy golden visual palette. think 'ice storm,' think 'the graduate.' this one is not to be missed and will surely be mentioned as a festival prize winner and possibly even warrant oscar consideration.
