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.

    I finally find a movie I want to watch and it has to have stupid subtitles!!!! Bummer. Can't watch a movie with them, too distracting, and if I wanted to read I'd grab a book!

    I laughed a little, & cried a lot. I love Eric Roberts, but I prefer him in movies where is is REALLY hot. Good movie anyway. I thought the picture quality was fine on my computer.

    This is one of the saddest movies I ever seen and has one of the best all-star casts.

  • FRANKO FRANKO 2016-03-26 13:47:47
    Buena y excelente pelicula, deja una enseñanza de la triste historia de personas que pasaron por el VIH Y SIDA A FINES DEL SIGLO XX y que hoy practicamente deja eso en el pasado siendo tratada correctamente. Hubiera sido mejor subtitulada en español tal cual se mostro en su estreno en Canal CineCanal en 1997
  • Aura Hyel 2016-03-25 23:04:25
