• Love and Death on Long Island
|Genre: Drama, Gay/Lesbian, Culture Clash, Hollywood, Deception, Psychodrama, Love|
Plot: British novelist Giles De'Ath, a stuffy man who is completely oblivious to modern life and technologies, gets locked out of his house and settles for a visit to the cinema. Instead of the E.M. Forster adaptation that he intended to view, he is shocked to discover that he accidentally purchased a ticket to "Hotpants College 2." But before he can flee the theatre, he becomes mesmerized by the appearance of teen idol Ronny Bostock. Unable to shake or quench his thirst for the actor, he eventually travels to Long Island with the intentions of meeting him face to face. What begins as an awkward, distant relationship slowly becomes a mutual friendship that eventually concludes when the truth comes out. A funny and touching film based on the novel by Gilbert Adair.
