Description
A gay man moves to Florida to look after his aging parents during the height of the AIDS epidemic. Unable to leave after their deaths, he chronicles the indignities of growing old in a small town. He develops a friendship with Earl, whom he met cruising at the local boat ramp. For decades they watch classic films together and critique the neighbors. Earl is the only person in town with whom the unnamed narrator can truly be himself. As Earl’s health begins failing, the narrator distracts himself with sexual encounters at the video porn store and visits to Walgreens, exploring his loneliness and need for human connection. -- adapted from jacket
