Quotes

Troy: Why'd you stay with me?
Donna: Troy, I dug you. You know, I remember the exact date, time, and TV show when I discovered that you weren't into me... I caught you. I watched you in your rec room stroking yourself to a male undergear catalog. A crusty, stuck together male undergear catalog. And I was your girlfriend.

20 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's a shame the production is somewhat student-y and that some of the dialogue is muffled and inaudible, because this is a film that rings true. Two straight-acting friends, a hunk and a dropout, move in together, and we slowly start to piece together just what kind of relationship they have - which is appropriate, since they don't appear to know either. This is what I liked best about this film - no neat resolutions, no flashes of insight, just a realistic and sometimes painful muddle of emotions and situations that have to be dealt with as best as can be, which usually isn't very well at all. That's certainly been my experience of dealing with sexuality, outside of the commercial gay ghetto anyway - real-life grappling with queer issues isn't neatly resolved in three acts and buying a Pride T-shirt doesn't make it all better. So this is definitely worth seeing, if you're not expecting Dolby stereo and answers to all your questions.
