DIRECTOR: BILL SHERWOOD
CAST: STEVE BUSCEMI, RICHARD GANOUNG, JOHN BOLGER
Sherwood’s bittersweet comedy-drama features a young Steve Buscemi in the star making role of manic rock ‘n’ roller Nick, ex-lover of Richard Ganoung’s Michael, who is simultaneously coping with Nick’s illness and the imminent overseas departure of current boyfriend John Bolger. Setting his scene during one bustling 24-hour period which ends with a Fire Island foray, the sadly short-lived Sherwood faces tragedy with humane humor, creating one of the quintessential queer films of the Reagan debacle.
