Storyline

Late in the nineteenth century, Henry May, New York's golden child, has reached the end of a long road to self destruction. In debt and drug addicted, he is simply marking time until his eventual exile into poverty and oblivion. On the other side of the city Henry Long carefully observes May's decline, devoting his brilliant mind to the constant surveillance of his former school friend. May and Long finally meet and begin a complicated and dangerous odyssey that leads them to the sea and beyond. The houses and families of New York's golden age as well as the timeless underworld of the city are vividly brought to life as May and Long journey to the possible resolution of both their troubled lives. Both men discover what they have lost to get where they are, what they are willing to risk to get what they want and what they are willing to lose to live. Written by Randall Sharp

A dark 19th Century Drama to be Sure, and what a Beauty
20 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Henry May Long is a gorgeous work of art, impeccably produced and acted, with a script that for me called to mind some of the great dramas by authors such as Emile Zola and Theodore Dreiser, with all of the classic colors of fear and love and guilt and dread and treachery among people more vivid here than anything I've seen in a long time. I found the sadness of it beautiful, and the dishonesty that played into the friendship between the two men gave the story certain aspects of a thriller for me. I loved the feeling I had while watching it, which stayed with me for a long time after. There was something so true about it that it felt almost like being transported to that time in order to eavesdrop and spy on the characters.
