"You won't leave me, will you?" Nick asks Brandon shortly after revealing to him the results of his last blood test for HIV. "I don't want to die alone." In spite of Brandon's protestations, the two soon find the love they had shared for many years in ruins. One year after their breakup, Nick is confronted with a ravaged immune system and a CT Scan and lab values which, along with his worsening forgetfulness, clenches the diagnosis of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) -- a condition he has seen claim his friends and one which he vows will not take him. Due to the aggressive nature of the disease, he has only a few days of conscious life remaining. His plan, he announces to family and "extended family," is to voluntarily end his life himself before the disease renders him unrecognizable to those he loves and he, in turn, is unable to recognize them. Uninvited to the farewell party, Brandon's presence is greeted with jeers from those who see him as having abandoned Nick ...Written by

An emotional roller coaster even for the toughest man!
This movie has to be one of the saddest films ever made. It's right up there along side "Steel Magnolias". I myself cried 30 minutes into the movie. Eric Roberts gives an all out performance as a gay male who decides to end his own life after he realizes he is losing his battle against AIDS. His character decides to have one last big party surrounding himself with family and friends. His ex-lover returns for this one last party to try and make amends. With the constant playing of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" you watch as this man says his last goodbye's and readies himself for his departure. Even though surrounded by friends and family it gives you a strong sense that in the end we still all die alone. Truly a masterpiece and a must see! Just make sure to keep the tissues close by.
