Trivia

Trish says, "He's one of those kids who'll end up on a clock tower with an AK-47". This is a reference to Charles Joseph Whitman aka "The Texas Tower Sniper". On August 1st, 1966 at around 11:30 a.m. Whitman climbed the tower at the University of Texas in Austin, laden with multiple firearms, and began shooting at people from atop the tower.

In total he murdered 16 people (including his mother and his wife, both of whom he stabbed to death before he went to Texas University) and injured 31 people. Contrary to popular belief he did not, in fact, have an AK-47; he had a .30 caliber M1 carbine semi-automatic. See more »

Excellent
10 September 2012 | by karlsandiegoSee all my reviews

I can't understand why this movie didn't get wider distribution and more attention. It's really one of the overall best movies--gay or straight--i've seen in a long time. The writing is expert and never falls to cliché or hackneyed dialog. The actors are all excellent in their roles, presenting genuine emotions genuine, allowing us to feel with them and for them. The big reveal may be a little too unannounced, mainly because the character of Jason isn't given the time he needs, but I consider even that a minor flaw in an otherwise intelligent, moving, thought provoking and far-from-heavy-handed movie. Up there with Maurice as my favorite gay movie; up there with the Big Chill as one of may favorite movies overall.
