Episode Description: This week, as Pride Month comes to a close, we take on a landmark film in the gay cinema canon, 1990’s Longtime Companion, directed by Norman René. The first mainstream movie to tackle the AIDS epidemic, we discuss if this gentle ensemble drama still holds up today, and if it deserves to be discovered by a whole new generation. Spoiler alert: it does.
