Parting Glances is a pioneering work in Gay cinema and a model for such films as My Beautiful Laundrette and Longtime Companion. Parting are never easy. But picture this: Michael is editing an S&M sci fi novel he can’t stand, his friend and former lover Nick is dying of AIDS and his current lover Robert is about to leave for two years in Africa. And there begins a surprisingly funny, wonderfully acted love story set in the gay scene of Manhatten. Parting Glances is about the loyalties of friendship and the vicissitudes of romantic love. It’s about the relationship between gays and straights. And it’s about how we all try to do our jobs, be there for our friends and keep a love affair going – all at the same time. It’s a real life 48 hours in New York City, with people you’re happy to have met.
