There's a lot to discuss here, and the script makes many great points but always within the context of the story.

Hard Pill supplies the kind of intelligent, thoughtful, personal, effective speculative fiction that doesn't come around nearly enough these days.

Audience Reviews for Hard Pill

A very interesting concept, hampered slightly by (mostly) mediocre writing.
It would be easy to write this off as simply a "gay film", which is what it is on the surface.
But for those who care to do a little thinking...It poses some really deep and thought provoking questions that are applicable to all people regardless of sexual orientation.
It does a great job of making you think about relationships (not just sexual ones) in general and how easy it is to allow feelings of comfort and familiarity to overshadow what we actually want , need and deserve... healthy, happy and productive relationships with the people in our lives.
