Love And Death On Long Island

PG-13| 1 hr. 33 min.

Plot Summary
Curmudgeonly author Giles De'Ath (John Hurt), a widower with a marked distaste for modern popular culture, attempts to buy a ticket for a film adaptation of an E.M. Forster novel, but instead finds himself watching a tacky teen sex comedy. Yet when the beautiful Ronnie Bostock (Jason Priestley) appears on the movie screen, Giles finds himself caught in a whirlwind of unanswered questions about both his own sexuality and his place in late 20th-century society.
