On a summer weekend, John and Marian Kerr, a wealthy couple in their forties, invite Lyle, a gay art critic and former lover of John's half-brother Tony--who died of AIDS exactly a year before--to their country house in upstate New York. Lyle invites his new lover Robert, a poor landscape painter, along for the weekend. The addition of Robert and a visiting neighbor, Laura, disrupts the balance and creates tension between all of them by exposing their common fears. They are each in their own way trying to recapture something that is lost.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If I had to spend the weekend with these whiny, pretentious characters, I'd jump in the lake and never come up."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"It gets pretty thick, but, thankfully, some of the performances cut through the preciousness."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"An engaging drama about grief based on a novel by Peter Cameron."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A slow, ponderous and pretentious film, it has a treacly score that fills every crevice of the set."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
