Storyline

Palm Springs' White Party is the backdrop for this documentary on the fast-paced world of gay circuit parties. Halpern and Rolov follow four young men: 23-year old straight-laced circuit virgin, Brandon; 21-year old party boy with a drug problem, Tone; and sensitive but strong-willed 19-year old, Jon. Accompanying them is Jon's "soulmate," Todd, a 35-year old businessman recklessly reliving his adolescence, plus other "circuit friends" the boys make along the way. When Boys Fly pulls no punches in exposing this world - men are shown overdosing and engaging in risky behavior - but at the same time, it also shows the sense of community and vitality the parties bring to the men who attend.

Hitting the Circuit with "Boys"
25 November 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

WHEN BOYS FLY is an intriguing, entertaining, and sometimes harrowing documentary on the Circuit Party scene, particularly the annual festivities that take place in Miami Beach. The characters we meet range from mere boys to men, but each of them are in search of the ultimate high - a non-stop marathon of music, dancing, sex, drugs, and more sex. But what happens when the music fades? That's when the real drama of the film unfolds. The results are sometimes hilarious, sometimes disturbing, but the film never loses our interest - even when the party has ended.
