Started in 2007 to keep a track of gay films that I watched, this blog has come much further than I had planned. There are tons of movies that I need to watch and review here. Through this blog, I want to give you genuine, my personal heart-felt review of the films that I see. These are my personal thoughts and opinions about the films and I would love to hear your thoughts on these films as well. I always reply to comments in a day or two. Please help me make my blog more popular by becoming a member, following it and by recommending it to your friends. As far as I know this is one of the very very few gay movie review blogs where reviews are not linked or copy-paste imdb summary. Enjoy and do keep writing your feedback.

Peter's Friends

I think I have mentioned before a few times in my blog about the kind of movies I prefer. I definitely like movies where there is a group of people and they show how there life is screwed up and how everyone has some or the other issues. It would be wrong to classify this film as gay film because apart from the fact hat Peter is hinted to be bisexual, there is nothing else in the movie that shows or depicts that it is for just gay audience.

Six friends in an acting troupe graduate from Cambridge University in 1982 and go their separate ways. Ten years later, Peter inherits a large estate from his father, and invites the rest of the gang to spend New Year's holiday with him. Roger and Mary are now married. Mary is always stressed about their son because they already have lost another child. She i always in panic mode. They fight but towards the end they make up in a good way after Roger explains why it is necessary to let their son grow normally. There Is Sarah with her current boyfriend. She is sex maniac who likes it till the moment the guy commits and she freaks out. The date she brings with her suddenly tells his wife about the affair and leaves her. This freaks Sarah out and eventually the date goes back to his wife. Maggie is lonely single woman who thinks she might have a chance with Peter but Peter tells her that he has not been sexually active for a while and may be he is gay or bisexual. And then there in Andrew who is now married to a famous TV star who is all about keeping fit, not eating and making it big in movies. She also laves half way in her vacation because she gets a movie offer. On New Years eve Peter tells his friends that he is HIV positive and thats why he wanted this meeting. All friends sing and dance and celebrate the new year just being amongst themselves.

There is nothing special about the movie but still when you watch the film, you feel excited and happy to se the bonds of friendship and the chemistry and how people change at a certain level over the years but sometimes friendships never change. Acting was decent by one and all. It take some time to get a hang of all the characters but after that its all good.

A short and sweet film. (6/10)
