Movie Info

Recovering from an ill-fated affair with a married man, Gabe finds solace in the relationship he maintains with his ex-wife and daughter. On the other side of town, Ernesto evades life at home with his current live-in ex-boyfriend by spending much of his spare time in the hospital with an ailing past love. Impervious to the monotony of their blue-collar world, they maintain an unwavering yearning for romance. Far from the gay centers of the world, director Yen Tan explores the complex and oft-forgotten lives of gay men in small-town America. The understated, contemplative nature of Ernesto and Gabe's story is told from the perspective of an observer, allowing us-even if just for a moment-to understand what it means to be an outsider. The emotional isolation the two men have grown accustomed to is captured in a subtle, optimistic, poetic fashion while avoiding melodrama. In a refreshingly quiet film, Tan's protagonists never try to run away from their relatively hollow surroundings, but opt to fill life's deepest voids with their tenacious confidence. - TOBY BROOKS [Sundance Film Guide] (c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Pit Stop

All Critics (4)

Though it is notably spare, the film embraces its limited budget to tell a sad truth, set largely indoors where the bare walls of big rooms speak to a overriding sense of loneliness even when they're filled by people.

Anchored by some nuanced performances and a character driven screenplay, the film manages to say a lot without speaking loudly.

One of those small miracles that cinemaphiles justly revel in and it's a supreme addition to the queer-cinema canon.

Emotionally raw, unrelentingly honest, and dramatically feasible, here's a terrifically acted romp that deserves a lengthy art house run.
