A Magnificent Screenplay With Stunning Performances of James Marsden and Scott Speedman
During the night, Tom (Scott Speedman) invites Dan (James Marsden) to his apartment for one night stand. After a couple of drinks, Tom ties Dan to a chair, and sends a sample of Dan's blood to a laboratory for AIDS test and tell Dan that if he is HIV positive, he will kill him. While waiting for the test result, Tom discloses the last dramatic events of his personal life. "The 24th Day" is indeed a play in a low budget movie, having a magnificent screenplay and stunning performances of James Marsden and Scott Speedman. The story is very real, credible and updated and is a kind of alert about this dangerous virus. The dialogs are very sharp, and this highly indicated movie was a great surprise for me. "The 24th Day" is another good example for Hollywood of excellent low budget movie. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "24o Dia: O Prazo Final" ("24th Day: The Due Day")
