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

This gets four stars only for the hunky guys
4 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Philip (Gregory Phelan) and Guy (Kevin Spirtas) are lovers in an open relationship. Philip is monogamous but Guy can't seem to stop having sex with as many guys as possible. Philip doesn't like it but lives with it. Then Guy gets AIDS and this all moves to a predictable conclusion.

Pretty bad. The film is grainy and the sound is frequently inaudible. I can forgive that (this is a VERY low-budget film) but I can't forgive the cardboard characters and woefully predictable plot. Even in 1996 (when I saw it) this was considered old hat and had been done many times before. I saw it at a gay film festival in Boston. There was scattered applause when it ended and people walked out complaining about how it was just another AIDS film. I agree! AIDS WAS (and is) a serious subject but (back in the late 1990s) every gay film seemed to be about that and nothing else. This was just one of many...and not a very good one. Phelan and Spirtas (who is openly gay) are as good as they could be and they're both handsome, hunky guys but that's not enough for a 90 minute film. See "Longtime Companion" if you want to see a good film about AIDS and avoid this one.
