Movie Info

A group of four young, black, gay men and their lesbian best friend arrange to meet up in New York City one year after their graduation from Brown University. Their plans for a weekend of fun start off well, relaxed in each other's company as only old friends can be. But old tensions quickly resurface. Drinking, drugs, hidden desire and the demands of promiscuity put friendship, trust and even lives at risk. In between sharp one-liners and a great soundtrack there's a few important lessons that these pleasure-seekers must learn for themselves. Written with a real sense of the demands of urban living, these bright and believable characters will remind you of someone you know. -- (C) Official Site

The large ensemble deliver mainly endearing performances and the tech elements are solid despite the obvious budget.

Audience Reviews for The Skinny


I saw it and thought the script was loose but the real standout was Jussie Smollett as Magnus. He really delivered a heartfelt performace in a part that could easily have been very annoying. I'd see it again because its a good time.

THE SKINNY is a universal story of friendships. Unlike the trailer, the movie has a lot to offer. A film best viewed with a friend or friends. There are several stand out performances and a lots of truth in the story. Limited engagement. See this if you can.
