It was one of the first films to confront the emotional repercussions of AIDS, and has not become dated--which speaks volumes for this appealing candid movie.
Bill Sherwood's film is one of the first and most significant works (indie, of course) about the AIDS crisis that goes beyond the issue of coming out, placing its romantic triangle in the broader context of a vibrant gay community.
Still the best and most honest film ever made about AIDS.
