Hailed as the first mainstream film to put human face on the AIDS epidemic, "Longtime Companion" is a remarkable drama that takes an honest, unflinching look at how this devastating disease changes everyone it touches. Intelligent, unflinching and unpatronising, and starring a terrific ensemble cast including Oscar®nominee Bruce Davison, Campbell Scott, Dermot Mulroney and Mary-Louise Parker, this heart-rending, yet triumphant film is an illuminating, deeply moving experience.
During the summer of 1981, a group of friends in New York are completely unprepared for the onslaught of AIDS. What starts as a rumour about a mysterious "gay cancer" soon turns into a major crisis as, one by one, some of the friends begin to fall ill, leaving the others to panic about who will be next. As death takes its toll, the lives of these friends are forever redefined by an unconditional display of love, hope and courage.
