Profound, touching and with great messages!
18 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

While a bit *soft* at times, this film is well worth watching. It holds a deep message for all humans ... "to know who we are is the key to understanding others". It also tells us that TRUE friends are what make life worth living!

Tom Hulce, winning an Emmy (long over due!) for his performance as Peter Patrone, is excellent! Not playing the sterotypical gay man, he shows us that we all have one thing in common ... we want to be loved for who we are!

BRAVO!
