  1. One of my all time favorite films! A captivating small film dealing with the relationship of two men over decades and the surrounding upheaval of the gay movement. Wonderful supporting performances contribute to the overall goodwill of the film. Sirena Irwin is a sketch as Beverly the trend jumping Greek chorus and Jill St. John an absolute scene stealer as Alan's boozy, wise mom but the entire cast even in the smallest roles is splendid. The musical score is also loaded with excellent choices that really set the right tone for each scene. However it's the chemistry and performances of the two lead actors, Larry Sullivan and Steve Braun, that makes you really like and root for the characters throughout their journey.
