Critic Reviews for Longtime Companion
Bearing the burden of being the first film about AIDS, Longtime Companion (which premiered at Sundance Fest) had the task of placing the crisis on the national agenda, which meant a gentler, kinder tone; even so, it's a touching, nicely acted feature
Exceptional ensemble, heart-wrenching
Formally unadventurous, a little PBS-y, but undeniably moving as it evolves.
A touching story, a bit preachy, but daring for its time.
Good, but not as good as Parting Glances
Audience Reviews for Longtime Companion
Its surprising. It was made before Philadelphia, focuses on characters that are almost entirely gay men, it covers the entirety of the 1980s, offers a very honest portrait of the AIDS crisis, is a better movie, but Philadelphia is heralded as the definitive film about this subject. This film may move a little too fast but it isn't cheesy or award hungry like Philadelphia. It has a great cast and its well made. Deserves way more attention than it gets.
touching and groundbreaking film, great ensemble acting. you feel these people could be friends. early showcase for mary louise parker and campbell scott.
