Trivia

Inspired by the murder of Jody Dobrowski in October 2005 who was beaten to death by two "gay-bashers" on Clapham Common. Dobrowski was beaten so badly, he could only be identified by his fingerprints, a detail that is echoed in the film. Both of Dobrowski's murderers received life sentences. See more »

Well-done but rather one-sided
28 July 2007 | by (Basel, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This movie gets another mixed review from me.

I didn't mind the negative portrayals so much (unsympathetic people exist, after all, among straights and gays alike, as does hatred and hypocrisy, and the performances were mostly really good), but I didn't like that that's all we get in this film. I've read that the writer didn't intend to portray the full range of gay life, but I guess that was what I expected from an anniversary-type movie. All the depression, the violence, the negativity left me feeling rather bleak and unsatisfied, thinking "But that's not all there is!"

And, on a rather superficial note, as a big fan of 'Maurice' I did wish for more interaction between Wilby and Graves. :)
