A fine story of love and devotion transcending genders
28 May 2013 | by (Connecticut, United States) – See all my reviews

Until this evening we had never even heard of this gem. When the description of two poets came up I thought it would be too flowery overly dramatic and make vague references to ancient characters. I couldn't have been more wrong. Here is a true love story which transcends time and genders. Although I don't see this as a gay movie, others perhaps will, however it was a joy to find something in the gay grendre that wasn't campy, didn't have twenty-somethings bed hopping. Here we have two grown-ups in a time prior to Connecticut offering marriage, and therefore little rights. Speaking of Connecticut the scenery along our southeast shore could have been used as a promotion for the state's tourism association. Mr. Pomeroy, in particular was wonderful with an incredible range of emotions that one rarely sees any more.
