    just watched the full movie. the boys were really close bordering sexual but of course that was ambiguously presented. The 12yo kid was always left out. He loved his brothers and was not mature enough to vocalise what he really felt. I was an unusual perspective on HIV/AIDS. Thank God meds have improved and its no longer a death sentence

    I really have to admit, even not being gay, this film is really captiving, i live in Brazil, a country with such misjudge and narrowmind persons that it is almost unbeliveable, i have one gay friend, i am atheist and i am very short-sighted. People here makes fun of about anything about you.

As such, four Atlanta city slickers - alpha male Lewis Medlock, generally even-keeled Ed Gentry, slightly condescending Bobby Trippe, and wide-eyed Drew Ballinger - decide to take a multi-day canoe trip on the river, with only Lewis and Ed having experience in...
