Gentle, Funny and Affectionate without being too slushy
I loved this film: it is gentle, funny and affectionate but doesn't shy away from dealing with some of the tougher issues that mature age people have to face when coming out. Some of the themes resonated strongly with me: a gay man coming out in my 50s.
Evan Todd as Adam could perhaps have played it a bit stronger. At times the camaraderie between the four central characters seemed flimsy. But overall I thought it was fairly well played.
My score is a very personal one. If I were being more objective I'd probably rate it around 6/10 - not the greatest film to have ever graced the silver screen but a sensitive one.
