From the director of Punks, comes the much-anticipated third feature from Patrik-Ian Polk, a sharply scripted comedy about a group of four young, black, gay men and their lesbian best friend. They arrange to meet up in New York a year after they have left university. Their plans for a weekend of fun start off well, relaxed in each other’s company, as only old friends can be. But old tensions resurface. Drink, drugs, hidden desire and the demands of promiscuity put friendship, trust and even lives at risk. In between sharp one-liners and a great music track there’s a few important lessons that these pleasure-seekers have to learn for themselves. Written with a real sense of the demands of urban living, these bright and believable characters will remind you of someone you know.
