Young, beautiful and intelligent, Trevor (screenwriter Brent Gorski) is in a stalemate. Entangled in an unhealthy relationship with Darrell, a self-destructive heroin addict, and trapped in a telemarketing job, Trevor finds scant comfort in Los Angeles' vapid party scene, where conversation rarely rises above inquiries like "So, are you an actor?" Worse still, he and his two best friends - roommate Andie and singer Jake - are being pulled apart by boredom and discontent. At the hospital for his boyfriend's latest overdose, Trevor finds a potential new beginning in Ephram, a medical intern with ambition, a warm demeanor and strikingly good looks. After they spend a romantic evening together, Trevor seems poised to make some changes. He begins by ending his relationship with Darrell and then strives to reconnect with Andie and Jake. But what should be a joyous event - a party celebrating a negative HIV test - explodes into rage and sorrow. Darrell shows up unannounced and makes a scene,... Written by JONATHAN L. KNAPP

Just Pure Awful
18 January 2016 | by smooth_op_85See all my reviews

I tried to care about these characters, even when two of them have tragic events in their lives.

The only thing it seems to get right is dealing with a heroin addict and hoping that your denial is reality.

Other than that, this film is pretty clumsy, the other gay guy has a music scene that doesn't fit the film and I don't remember if he even mentions his musical abilities or anything before that point.

It just seems thrown together, no sense of pacing and at the end it left me just with scrunched eyes and wondering "Did anyone proofread this before they shot it? OR point out things that didn't make sense"
