Director and co-scripter Jimmy Smallhorne, founder of the Irish Bronx Theatre, set this blue-collar drama in the Bronx. Construction crew foreman Johnnie (Smallhorne) sees girlfriend Maria (Kimberly Topper), but when this macho man dons a feather boa to go out for the evening, the film does a double-take, exploring bisexual lifestyles, the world of S&M, male hustlers, drugs, nightmares, and abuse suffered by Johnnie during his childhood. The cinematography by Declan Quinn (Leaving Las Vegas) won an award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You'll walk away confused, but then again, Johnnie is more than a bit confused himself, so maybe Smallhorne has achieved his desired effect after all"
‑ Don Willmott, Filmcritic.com
"The film is subtitled for those who haven't dated many Irishmen"
‑ Brandon Judell, PopcornQ
