This British television adaptation of American author David Leavitt's seamy novel of the same name is unfortunatley a little cold in its rendering here. The actors are all uniformly good, especially Brian Cox as the repressed father who comes out of the closet after his son bravely announces his homosexuality. The scenes never truly amount to anything really gripping or torrid. What is sorely missing is the book's central character of NYC.
