An Incredible Documentary "Must See"!
30 July 2014 | by (Long Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

A powerful LGBT documentary feature that everyone out there needs to see - Young, Old, Gay, Straight, Bi, Trans or otherwise! Great job PJ Raval and congratulations on a film well done!!

My husband and I saw this for a private screening at The Writer's Guild and I must say, both of us were very impressed by it as a whole. The most brilliant part about it is that it forces us(as aging gay men in America) to see just what it will feel like when we "get there" someday. I don't think any of us as gale males ever thought hard or long enough on what our lives might actually be like once we finally become well over the hill. This film depicts just that scenario through three very different yet strong and emotionally felt characters, all being completely different from the next. We soon realize, these men all came out as young men in the 70's and into the 80's and each have survived the plague of the AIDS epidemic, unlike most of their friends and they are now here to tell you their tale.

You must see this film, especially if you are a gale male who ever wanted to give it some real thought of what growing old might really feel or be like. An exceptional, well plotted-out documentary that paints a vivid "in your face" portrait of what the golden years could be like.
