Charles Busch wrote and directed this comedy drama about a male nurse who arrives to care for a terminally ill woman and forms a warm friendship with her sensitive 13 year old grandson. Poignant film can be overly precious at times, but ultimately benefits from the engaging and sincere performance of P.J. Verhoest, its young star.
This was a really great movie. Deifinitly worth watching. It's different from my usual though, being a drama. It has it's sad moments and it's akward ones. But it's really good. so yeah.
This was the best gay themed film I have seen. (I haven't seen many; about 8 in my 69 years). It is a comedy-drama about a dying grandmother (Polly Bergen) who has a 12 year old grandson who is effeminate and not ashamed of it. She has an incompetent nurse at first, who she soon disposes of, and hires a replacement from the agency. She expects a woman, but instead, a man shows up who is clearly gay. The film takes off from there, with the nurse and the boy slowly developing a rapport. The main theme of the film is coming to terms with budding gay sexuality. The boy, PJ Verhoest, gives a great performance, and the film promotes honesty while letting him discover his preference when he is ready.
