    Definitivamente una de las historias en cine gay que vale la pena ver.. El compromiso desinteresado y el amor en pareja que predomina en la historia es mucho mas relevante y notorio que cualquier otra cosa.....

    I watched this movie with my mom. She wept so much. All she had to say to me after it was over was "YOU BETTER NOT GET AIDS!" That's why I'm a mommas boy.

    I've never watched a "gay movie" (I'm gay), because I always thought they were about cheating and sex. I found this trailer and I will watch it, wish me luck.

    The moment that broke me was then John confessed to Tim about how easy it would be to let go and die... when Tim started crying I just couldn't hold it anymore. Their chemistry, acting... it was perfection. This movie is a piece of art. Now, do I want to "suffer" more by reading the book?
