    Highly recommend - but very emotive!
    This was a pleasant surprise. The acting was very good - portraying emotions so realistically. So often lately I seem to end up getting irked by films where reactions are totally not believable/realistic. Ben Aldridge in particular stood out in that respect.

    I literally spent the second half of the movie crying. But like satisfyingly crying! A real good chick flick kind of crying.....but this story was true and so heartbreaking.

    Two things that kinda let it down a bit for me. One - the love story wasnt all that great because the couple separated and only got back together because one of them was dying. So that kinda sucked. Two - and this really annoyed me, and no-one else has mentioned this in any review! - but I was disappointed to see that Ben Aldridge wore a bald cap for his bald scenes rather than shaving his head. Considering the role he was playing, would it have been so hard to shave his head to be authentic? Maybe there was a reason why he genuinely couldn't - perhaps another imminent role that required hair - but if not, and if purely down to vanity of the actor then that is NOT cool.

    Lovely to see Sally Field!

    Highly recommend if you want an emotional and realistic film.

    "Love Story" Gay Style. Thin, stylish, shallow, unnecessary, but...there it is.
    While we are glad films like this actually get made to show that gay people in love relationships die just like Ali McGraw in "Love Story" and Barbara Hersey in "Beachers" and etcetera etcetera etcetera, this just could have been so much better. Did we really need the distraction of Sally and Bill as the dying hero's parents as the sacrificial reason to NOT EXPLORE the relationship between two intelligent adult gay men, except to go from big love to neurotic can't talk about it except in front of a therapist. And all that imaginary tv show bull did not help the film. Not good enough, even for all the high production values it contains. Once again, the script suffers embarrassingly from its iniability to confront the true subject of the picture.
