Storyline

In 1994 Pedro Zamora was the first HIV-positive homosexual to appear in a reality show on MTV. The audience of 'The Real World: San Francisco' identified easily with this intelligent, good-looking Latino. His presence on the show also meant that audiences in the United States and abroad had to engage with the topic of AIDS. A screen adaptation of Pedro Zamora's life: his childhood in Havana as the youngest of eight children, his emigration to the United States, his hard work as an AIDS activist, his appearance on 'The Real World' as well as the short time that was left to him subsequently. Written by Warsaw Film Festival

I have to admit that I didn't know who Pedro is/was, before I watched this movie. And another user stated correctly, that this movie does have a sort of "Movie of the Week" feeling to it. Still (and maybe because), I hadn't heard of this story I thought the portrayal of Pedro was intense and well played by it's main actor. More subtle than on the nose.

Since I have no idea how much creative freedom the makers took, while making the movie. The drama is good for this sort of movie, but I understand, if people might feel cheated and might have expected much more from this movie. A nice little movie then, but not a must see.
