Columbia College graduates Carl Seaton and Kenny Young scripted this intense and intelligent drama about responsibility and relationships. A young man (Young) preparing for his wedding learns from the partner-notification program of a local health clinic that his former lover is HIV-positive. As he waits for the results of his own test, he debates how and when to tell his fiancee and discovers that his slacker buddy (Eric Lane) faces the same situation. The taut and cleverly structured screenplay makes every conversation and event gain in significance as time passes but also includes welcome moments of outright hilarity, as well as acute observations of young, black urban professionals. This is a work with the courage of its convictions—independent filmmaking at its best. Seaton directed. R, 97 min.
