| So sad...
Please keep your Kleenex close!I think the part where my eyes started getting watery was when Brandon(Gregory Harrison) and Nick (Eric Roberts) kissed. I was yelling and screaming, "Greg!Why?????NOOO!!" Yes I am a big fan of the man and I found it very surprising that he took the part as Brandon. After being lovers for 8 years Brandon and Nick are the complete opposite of each other yet they have so much to teach and learn from each other. When Nick gets tested positive Brandon gets scared and after trying his hardest to cope with Nick's illness he backs away from him in fear...maybe even a slight hatred that he is going to die. So they break up, Brandon finds someone else, who is very young and Nick just pretends he doesn't care. 1 year later Nick finds out he has only a few days to live after he discovers he has a brain tumour. He holds a party gathering friends and family. When Brandon turns up out of the blue everyone hates the idea of him being there, even Nick, but Brandon too needs to say goodbye. The actual part that was the saddest is when Brandon discovers that Nick wants his ashes scattered around they place where they first met, as Nick has now planned to kill himself and basically everyone wants to stop him, but know they can't. This was a terrific movie, there wasn't a dull moment, a lot of flashbacks were shown of the relationship Brandon and Nick shared and I think everyone can relate to that it is never easy to lose someone you love especially to death, but it also shows a side of reality that we all have to go sometime and we might as well make the most of life. Eric was terrific as Nick and the way he was trying to avoid Brandon. Gregory was great as Brandon, the emotions of seeing his loved one die slowly and yet still being strong about it for his sake even sitting by his bedside when he dies I think we all want that, to at least have a person by our side so we don't die alone.
