Quotes

Sebastian: The thing is, I was wrong about you. You don't just face our good sides. No... You stare right at our one eye, and you find the beauty in it anyway. Thank you for always seeing the best in people, even when they can't see it themselves.

Gay friends hopelessly devoted!!!
14 December 2018 | by ohlabtechguySee all my reviews

Have read other reviews that suggest this film is about unreturned romantic love between two long term gay friends. I disagree. It's about two long term gay friends who have become hopelessly devoted to one another. I am 58 and have a similar type friend for 30 years. There is no sex or romance, but we've been hopelessly devoted to one another for decades. The writer pokes fun at gay men who always think it's pointless to have other gay friends if you can't have casual sex with them. This was made clear in the bedroom scene where Sebastian's trick wants a three way. The attempted suicide scene clearly shows how devoted Charlie is to Sebastian regardless of their circumstances. Their embrace in this scene was the highlight of the entire movie and the whole story in a nutshell.
