This movie might make you reconsider your relationships with friends and family. Are you you making enough time for them? For being a movie about a kid coming home to die, it is quite meaningful. They could have made it a lot more depressing
Quiet drama of a family dealing with the eminent loss of the son to AIDS. Not a happy family to begin with they have become isolated in their own worlds though the years apparently without noticing and now must come to grips with many issues in a brief period of time. Glenn Close whose character is the most anxious and willing to reforge bonds is most impressive here but Leonard, Strathairn and Bridget Fonda all do well. Very moving especially considering the short running time.
Christopher Reeve's directorial debut after his riding accident. Touching movie of a son thats come home to die amidst a sister hell bent on making sure her son doesn't 'become' gay, a father not willing to make a real connection with his gay son and a mother who tries to take in every moment before he passes away. Whoopi Goldberg plays the nurse. As always her performance is touching and solid. Sad, beautiful movie that gets you to pick up the phone and talk to everyone you take for granted in your life.
