Tim and John began to look all starry eyed at while youngsters at their everything young men secondary school. John was chief of the football group, Tim a trying performing artist having minor impact in Romeo and Juliet. Their sentiment persevered for a long time to chuckle notwithstanding everything life tossed at it - the divisions, the segregation, the enticements, the jealousies and the misfortunes - until the main issue that affection can't fathom, attempted to crush them.
|nudity||8/10 All sex scenes within the film are between two men. They vary in terms of intensity and graphic portrayal. A brief encounter occurs in an alleyway - there is kissing and one of the main characters begins to unbutton the other's pants but is stopped. The two main characters begin making out within a sleeping bag - this proceeds into one of them masturbating the other until he climaxes. Not overly graphic but explicit in terms of moans and grunting. There is a brief graphic sex scene between the two leads - with thrusting, moaning and non-frontal nudity. Another brief sex scene where one of the characters begins kissing the other's buttocks but is interrupted. Two fairly graphic sex scenes are displayed - one of the main characters is seen having sex with two different men. It is quite rough - with thrusting, moaning, biting and non-frontal nudity. This sequence ends with one of the characters biting his boyfriend's nipple - this is not meant to be overly violent - it is played more for humour The two main leads proceed to have sex in their car - not overly graphic but explicit - played for humour. One of the main characters appears to have sex with his peers in his drama class - most of these are fairly explicit with kissing, moaning, thrusting and one instance of fellatio (occurs off-screen) A sequence seems to take place in a brothel and we see one of the main characters engaging in an orgy. It is not overly graphic but there is mild groaning and thrusting. There is a brief sex scene between the two main characters towards the end of the film - it is more tender and slow. Mild sexual innuendo One main instance of full-frontal nudity - it is for only a few seconds. Infrequent instances of non-frontal nudity.|
|violence||3/10 Some moderate homophobic physical violence - chiefly in a bar. One of the main characters ends up with a broken nose - blood is clearly visible. Another character is thrown to the ground and kicked repeatedly. A woman is pushed violently onto a table at the beginning of this instance. A minor physical altercation occurs between the two main leads.|
|profanity||6/10 Since the time period is during a time where AIDS was being blamed on the gay community, there are numerous homophobic slurs present. Other profanity instances such as s***, f***.|
|alcohol||5/10 Several instances of drug use, alcohol consumption and smoking. Nothing too hard-hitting.|
|frightening||6/10 The atmosphere is rather tense because of the sociopolitical climate of the era - especially in regards to the 1980s where the AIDS pandemic began. Seeing its main characters go through the effects of AIDS during the final act is rather distressing and heartbreaking. The violence against the gay community may be distressing and hard to watch.|
