Powerful and emotional
19 September 2004 | by (Pueblo, CO) – See all my reviews

The one thing that Marion (Stockard Channing) and Arthur (Harvey Fierstein) ever had in common - her ex-husband and his lover - has been lost to them both. Arthur is gay and lost his lover Collin because of AIDS. Though he is gone, the pain of his death from AIDS lingers on and he realizes that the spectra of AIDS will haunt him forever. Now the two people he loved must come to terms with his absence and each other. They are thrown into a battle by the loss, both needing a scapegoat for his death. Eventually, they discover strength, love and friendship from each other. This an incredible movie that is fabulous, well-written, well-acted, and extremely moving. Harvey Fierstein did an incredibly job of writing and acting in this movie and Stockard Channing is, as always, amazing.
