Storyline

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

Shut up Jim! --Spoiler Alert!!!
11 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spoilers below. Do not read if you have not seen this film and do not want plot point divulged! First off I would like to say that Mr. Spadaccini has done it again. He has combined an emotional theme with a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack and appropriate camera work to create a "real life" movie. These characters feel real to me and they react (for the most part like) people in these situations would react. I found Jim's character and performance the most entertaining. I was so amused by him that I found myself telling him to shut up along with the characters in the movie. I feel that this movie had it all, drugs, sex, nudity...but one this was missing...violence. I thought for sure that someone was going to get physically hurt before the trip ended. Ben's character was a little too caring, I wanted him to show more anger, but I think that his hurt was portrayed well. I love Anthony's use to color and black and white to show the emotional turmoil of each character and again the score was fantastic. This film is an intimate and emotionally intense showing of what happens when people commit selfish acts. I highly recommend it!
