This was a rather common story in the 80's and 90's. Boy meets boy, who has been wild before. Boys settle down, this time with a girl (not all that rare) and then after making a decent life together for about a year or two one of them gets sick and the end (not shown) is that they all die, and usually the first one to die is the baby. It was a hard movie to watch because I'd seen this happen over and over in real life so much at that time. With the advent of actual gay marriage and better treatments for AIDS we may see this story becoming more rare.

If you like to see guys making out this film is for you. For me I stopped at about a half an hour.

I love the book that this film is based on. I read the book a few years ago, but still stays with me. The film did not mess up images I had from the book, but did not give me much of impression, either. I still can remember the details of book, yet I can hardly remember anything from the film, even though I watched the film just recently.

Colin Farrell plays a bi-sexual. Sounds promising. It's not. A rather lumbering version of a clumsy novel by Michael Cunningham that strains too hard to be poetic. The subject may have been ahead of it's time: queers having kids. A couple of scenes of Colin working up a sweat chopping wood or under the hood of the car might have helped oodles. Instead it's just dull.

Rambling exploration around the life of a very confused young man. His apparent charm glosses over an attitude of lostness and indifference and therefore anything goes. Got fed up about halfway through.

An interesting, thought provoking idea. The ending was a little flat for me.
