Goofs

When Felix is riding the subway while observing a rider with lesions, the subway car is immaculately clean and graffiti free. During the early-1980s (the time this film takes place), New York City subway cars were notoriously gritty looking with graffiti covering the inside and outside of the cars. Police officers were also a common sight as crime on the subway was at an all time high. During the late 1980s, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) which oversaw the city's subway services purchased a newer model from Canadian manufacturer Bombardier that was made of graffiti-proof alloys and had a different seat layout from previous trains. This model is the one used in this film. See more »

30 May 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I never cry when watching movies or reading books but this one really got to me. I believe it was an important story that needed to be told. The movie was brought alive by amazing actors (especially Matt Bomer<3) I really do hope that this movie is taken seriously and gets more attention due to the fact that more people need to know about AIDs awareness and because discrimination and segregation still happens within the gay community which I find absolutely disgusting. If we really did believe in equal rights and all that BS we wouldn't be shunning gay people. And for those of you who are saying only gay people can enjoy this movie that is so stupid. I'm 100% straight and loved this definitely I my top 10 fav movies:) I definitely recommend watching this movie!
