Description "You won't leave me, will you?" Nick asks Brandon shortly after revealing to him the results of his last blood test for HIV. "I don't want to die alone." In spite of Brandon's protestations, the two soon find the love they had shared for many years in ruins. One year after their breakup, Nick is confronted with a ravaged immune system and a CT Scan and lab values which, along with his worsening forgetfulness, clenches the diagnosis of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) -- a condition he has seen claim his friends and one which he vows will not take him. Due to the aggressive nature of the disease, he has only a few days of conscious life remaining. His plan, he announces to family and "extended family," is to voluntarily end his life himself before the disease renders him unrecognizable to those he loves and he, in turn, is unable to recognize them. Uninvited to the farewell party, Brandon's presence is greeted with jeers from those who see him as having abandoned Nick is his time of greatest need.

    Thank you for posting, even with English subtitles which is great.

    What an incredible cast! I don't think I have ever seen a film with so many very talented and in many cases sadly, under-rated actors.

    Not to detract from the emotion of the film, but there's far too much kissing on the lips between everyone for my liking.

    Wow....Stellar performance by Eric Roberts. The story hit close to home. I saw so many families, as a hospice nurse, get totally dysfunctional when a loved one is terminal. They all go the stages of grieving at different places so there is a lot of friction and arguing with a whole lot of disagree to agree to disagree.......This movies shows family and friends pulls all the loose ends together......esp between he and his significant other. This movie absolutely does not get the kudos it deserves. Goes to show when a group of actors do it for the love of acting and the script vs an ego trip, what an amazing movie they can turn out. One of the best I have seen in YEARS............

    This movie really expresses what love means to me. They captured it, that exquisite pain.. that pain of loving. That unbearable loss that beats you down to the dirt... What an amazing film. There are only two films that affect me this deeply. It's My Party, and Black Rain, a black and white Japanese film that follows a woman that survived the Atomic Bomb. It follows her as her family tries to get her married, and the inevitable effects of radiation.... it breaks my heart so profoundly... Thank you so much for sharing this.

    I remember watching this back in 1996, I cried and cried, AIDS was such a death sentence then, I remember always being afraid to even contemplate sex because I was so scared of getting it. things sure have changed in 20 years, I know we have so much further to go, finding a cure, but the terror in so many people's hearts about contracting HIV back then was palpable. I remember showing my Momma this movie, after a few years of her getting used to the idea of having a gay son and she cried so hard and made me promise to always have safe sex
