Hello Vincey, it's me, Tara... guess what? Javi and Buzz just had a huge fight. According to Javi it was more dramatic than Gone with the Wind. So, let me tell you exactly how he told me, but ya have to swear not to tell anyone. Get ready for this Vincey, cause I know it's going to be a real shocker, but they are arguing about H... I...

Starts out weak, but ends very strong & wonderful.
The first half of the film is plagued by strange use of music and poor sound quality, but somewhere along the line, as if by magic, the film takes root. The technical weakness improves a great deal, and the characters come to life. By the end of the movie, you want more.
This is a realistic view of problems faced by many people: anti-gay violence, relationships that go awry, disease, and miscarriage. The relationships between the friends in this film are very strong and moving, and in the last half of the movie we see some very powerful and wonderful results of the friendships. Perhaps loveliest of all is a scene between two women, former lovers, who are talking as the NEW lover overhears everything. I won't say what happens, but it is a wonderful and gorgeous scene unlike anything I have seen in any other movie. This scene alone makes the film worth seeing.
See it by all means, but be prepared for some frustration with the first half of the film.
