This movie was wonderful. It kept me enthralled from beginning to end, and is a must see for anyone who has ever struggled with a past where choices have been made that in hindsight have not always been for the best. I also thought the acting was honest, and the director did a good job handling the subject matter of AIDS without becoming preachy or political. And although the aspect of sex addiction could have been exploited in a titillating way, it wasn't. I felt I was watching a movie about real people dealing with hard truths. So save your ten fifty (New York prices) for the myriad of stinkers showing at your local Cineplex and see this one instead.
