Steve Buscemi plays a man dying of AIDS in this moving, Brooklyn-set indie.
Dir Bill Sherwood
With John Bolger, Richard Ganoung, Steve Buscemi
A forerunner to the New Queer Cinema of the 1990s, Sherwood’s Brooklyn-set indie follows Michael (Ganoung) as he deals with his partner’s imminent departure for a work trip, while caring for Nick (Buscemi), an ex who’s dying of AIDS. Despite being one of the first films to confront the unfurling AIDS crisis, Sherwood’s deeply human film never becomes a simple ‘issue’ movie.
