Trivia

While shooting the scene in the art gallery, the film crew had to contend with an annoyed upstairs neighbor who protested the intrusion by stomping his feet on the floor. His persistent efforts resulted in minor damage to one of the pictures hanging on the wall. See more »

Goofs

It appears that within days of shaving his head Troy has a full head of hair again when he meets Jonathan to have a look at the the apartment. This is not a continuity error, the film's chronology is not linear. Even though the apartment scene is shown to us after the head shaving, in the film's timeline it took place before. See more »

Searching for his lost youth
9 February 2014 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

I hate to disagree with the previous reviewers but I feel this story is all about Troy thinking he is going to find is lost youth by going back to L.A. and seeking out Jonathan!

What Troy fails to realize is that Jonathan went on with his life and found a like soul in Raul ... until Troy comes back on the scene. Jonathan is captivated by Troy and their memories and is willing to give him what he wants while not realizing Raul is incensed by this behavior.

This is a complex story as Raul has two things to possibly loose, Jonathan is crossing over into his 30th years and needs to grow up and Troy will never know what he wants in his life.

The story is expertly told with sudden short flash backs of what happened just before the scene we are watching. It's a movie that one must watch attentively - an expert job of editing and writing. It will leave you wondering just what will happen with Raul & Jonathan!
