From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Hours" comes a story that chronicles a dozen years in the lives of two best friends who couldn't be more different. From suburban Cleveland in the 60s, to New York City in the 80s, where they meet an older woman, the film charts a journey of trials, triumphs, loves and losses. Now the question is: can they navigate the unusual triangle they've created and hold their friendship together?Written by
Is an adaptation from Michael Cunningham's 1990 novel of the same name, which in turn was expanded from a short story entitled "White Angel", published in the New Yorker in 1988. See more »

I think the movie is excellent. And adaptation of the novel is great.
These days, though, it is not easy to avoid comparing "Home at the End of the World" and "Brokeback Mountain".
It's not about sexuality I am talking about. And not about friendship exceeding usual limits. The most intriguing: what makes these two movies, close to each other emotionally, - really different.
And there is a major difference. The difference. Three main characters of the "Home" are acting at their own will. External social interference is minimal - or even supportive.
In the "Brokeback Mountain" everything is much more real. That's where all thoughts and deeds are stipulated and determined by social environment.
We should be happy that two great movies are available to us. Eventually they both about love, care, responsibility, gratitude. It's all about one thing so much needed to all of us: warmth of the human touch.
