Storyline

Teenage Goth couple Adam and Rhonda are club hopping when Adam spots a dancer he is immediately attracted to. Taking the dancer home, Adam is introduced to drugs by him, but their sexual escapade is interrupted by an embarrassing episode and the dancer leaves quickly. Years later Adam accidentally stabs his dog and brings him to a hospital where he is treated by a psychiatrist who once studied veterinary medicine. The doctor (Steve) and Adam start dating and fall in love. Rhonda, who has stayed Adam's close friend through the years, begins to date Steve's straight roommate at the same time. Months later Steve realizes that Adam was the Goth teenager with whom he had the embarrassing encounter, and breaks off the relationship, afraid that Steve will reject him when he finds out the truth.

Timely, Wonderful, Life and Love Affirming
19 January 2006 | by CastroCub05See all my reviews

I saw this film in Palm Springs at the Film Festival and I have to say that I have never seen a movie like it. It is groundbreaking in the fact that it is not self consciously moralizing or preaching about the 'gay' experience. It deals with the day to day of a grown up relationship between two people who are trying to learn how to love, just like most of us have or had, yet still deals with tough subjects like gay bashing, drug abuse and sexual compulsion, but not in a preachy way.

Many people in the audience applauded when someone thanked the director for a 'romantically optimistic ending', alluding to the tragic ending of Brokeback Mountain, which is, of course, made entirely by straights seeming to take pity on our plight as eternal martyrs.

There were no martyrs here, just a lot laughs and genuine chemistry between Adam & Steve. They didn't even beat each other up once! This movie is the future of gay cinema, I hope. You left the theater and hoped that someday you might fall in love, that's rare - and that isn't how Brokeback left me, which was completely depressed, feeling like a victim.

I hope it comes to San Fran.
