Storyline

In the carefree pre-AIDS late 1970s, Philip (Gregory Phelan) crosses paths with Guy (Kevin Spirtas) at a yard sale in a minor tussle over a green plaid shirt which turns into a deep and loving relationship, and a powerful journey through life, love, coping with the new disease of AIDS, and then death. They agree to have an open relationship, and they have outside dalliances, even while Philip realizes he's less into being open than Guy is. When Guy contracts AIDS, the relationship takes some tragic and unexpected turns. Written by trivwhiz

Awful Awful Awful
16 December 2002 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

I could barely sit through this awful movie. It was so bad and it makes me wonder why so many gay movies are so hideously awful. Why do they have so many flashbacks? Why do they have to have slow plots with bad artsy directing undertones? I'm sick of bad gay movies where people try way too hard to make it "arty". This was a HUGE waste of time and if I could I would give it a negative 10.
