Storyline

Its the 1960s at the University of Toronto. Doug is a well-liked senior with an equally popular girlfriend. Peter is a shy freshman, and new to the big city. Peter and Doug become best friends and soon start going to concerts, drinking, and playing in the snow together. When Doug brings Peter to a steam bath and washes his back, the friendship seems headed to a whole new level, at least in Doug's mind. But when Peter emerges from a party after having sex with a co-ed, things get even more complicated... Written by Havan Ironoak <Havan_Ironoak@bigfoot.com>

Ground breaking Film
19 February 2003 | by hausrathmanSee all my reviews

This ambitious student feature, shot at the University of Toronto, holds an important place in the history of independent Canadian film making. It was the first Canadian film to be invited to the Cannes film festival. It is also an important early film touching the subject of homosexuality.
