Synopsis

In this witty exploration of gay relationships, thirtysomething friends Paul, Matt and Will converge at the seaside for a relaxing holiday weekend, each with a boyfriend in tow. Paul (James Dreyfus) brings his lover Ben (Mark Sands), but their five-year relationship is on the rocks due to Paul's continued moodiness over the death of his brother Mark. Matt (Michael Urwin) brings Owen (Andrew Ableson), with whom he wants a lifelong relationship but whose boisterous personality doesn't suit him. Meanwhile, Will (David Coffey) and the much younger Adam (Darren Petrucci) recently shared a one-night stand, and Will is hoping it will grow into something deeper, though Adam knows better.


Reviews

"Titillating and very funny!" - San Francisco Bay Guardian

"A biting, shrewd and scathingly funny dissection of gay relationships." - San Francisco Chronicle

"A queer 'Big Chill!'" - Miami New Times

"Sweet [and] disarming. This well-acted film generously makes room for the complex traits of its couples-in-distress, incorporating sarcasm, sensuality, and psychodrama with equal skill." - Bright Lights Film Journal

"A fabulous date movie! How refreshing to see a film about a group of gay men who are not coping with anything except one another." - Stonewall Journal
