Quotes

Natalie: It just seems so unfair, you know? I mean, if I have to do this family thing, shouldn't I get to experience some of the good stuff too?
Julia: Well, who says the family thing has any rules? Wasn't it you who said, "Happy families are always happy in the same way", and...
Natalie: ..."every unhappy family sucks in a different way"? No, that was Tolstoy.
Julia: Oh. Gotta love those Russians.

Perfection
9 May 2003 | by nanorSee all my reviews

Kiefer is known for his diverse roles, and characters. In this film he has taken yet another different turn, playing an AIDS infected, gay, Fashion designer, Makeup artist, a perfectionist. The film is about the emotional distress that he is going through, not just because of the illness but trying to regain his beloved sister back into his short remaining life, and dealing with their traumatic childhood memory, their mother's death by the hands of their father...

excellent script, perfectly played characters, beautiful cinematography, capturing the depth of the story into each shot of film. it is not your regular Kiefer movie, where you'd see some sort of action sequence or thriller plot. it's a very emotional movie and deep story.

Kiefer is an amazing performer mastering every detail of his characters. I never pictured Kiefer in a homosexual storyline, but he did it perfectly...
