A tragic story about HIV, friendship, deception, and betrayal in the tradition of the cinema verite genre. Vowing his silence over his friend J.P.'s HIV status, Anthony eventually learns of a risky sexual encounter between J.P. and a mutual friend. Being held to his promise (and worried about a damaging secret of his own), Anthony's guilt over the deception becomes too much to handle during a weekend beach trip. The aftermath of Anthony's betrayal would be worse than he could ever have imagined... Written by Anthony Spadaccini

A Great Cat Fight :)
3 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That is what it ends up as. Us gay guys at our best, claws out, fangs bared, souls stripped, barbs flying. Just from that you all should watch this movie. Who of us has not kept a secret from our friends, add to that a secret that if we revealed it, "They" would let out a secret about moi? So we juggle, Friends, Confidences, Trust, Whispers, great stuff until it hits home! The secret you are keeping could affect or effect or infect,(take your pick) a close one to you, now what do you do? the good gossip he has on you is just devastating, but is it really worth a life? Time t decide. Oh where is that magnificent spin control so easily available on TV sitcoms? not gonna happen... this is real life Baby, now deal with it.

Anthony Spadaccini does a fantastic job of bringing all this together and packages it for all. A very hard job, Anthony makes every person in this film so real and poignant. Friendships, Trust, relationships, Honor, Love, and so much more involved characters, Anthony brings them all together and makes it explosive.

All of a sudden, a revelation makes the characters start to take sides, look inside themselves, act out, Attack, and retreat. I want to say how well this was written, but I read most of the lines were improvised. So i have to praise the group of great actors who relished their rolls, made them come to life before my eyes.

Great Butt Shot of Anthony also, I was hoping for more though. I do not recall who did the casting but they did the job well, the people fit their characters.

I was surprised when I looked up the actors backgrounds and found they had a limited resume'. They are definitely Professional caliber,I wonder why any of the crew, Director, writers, actors, etal, have not been signed by some studio for a full-scale release of their works.

My recommendation is, watch these now, then just wait and see, All should be appearing at the Oscars soon
