Storyline

In the carefree pre-AIDS late 1970s, Philip (Gregory Phelan) crosses paths with Guy (Kevin Spirtas) at a yard sale in a minor tussle over a green plaid shirt which turns into a deep and loving relationship, and a powerful journey through life, love, coping with the new disease of AIDS, and then death. They agree to have an open relationship, and they have outside dalliances, even while Philip realizes he's less into being open than Guy is. When Guy contracts AIDS, the relationship takes some tragic and unexpected turns. Written by trivwhiz

The movie connects well on a real emotional level.
15 November 2004 | by bs-26See all my reviews

As one who did many risky things during the last 25 years of my life, the movie is emotionally very close to my life. As the one who is still HIV- and lived though a time when my friends and acquaintances were dropping like flies, the movie really resonates emotionally with me.With all of the movie's faults, I connected with the the characters and the story on an emotional level.

I stopped counting the dead of AIDS of the people I knew when I exhausted counting with all my fingers and toes many multiple times. Though the chronology of the movie seemed hard to follow, I find that there was a reason for all of the transitions, just not the most usual and rational ones rather what seemed to be emotional ones. The background noise was very distracting. At the beach I could understand it, but it also occurred in the scenes which should have had a quiet background.
