What Happens: A homosexual English professor in 1960s Los Angeles struggles with his grief eight months after his lover’s death and plans to kill himself. But not before spending his day with an old friend and an interested new student.
Worst Hour: At the end of night, suicidal George goes to a bar and finds that student Kenny has followed him. They drink, go skinny dipping, go back to George’s house, drink more and pass out.
If It Had Taken A Year: Well, at the end of the film, George manages to make peace with his grief, so maybe he would have found himself in a much happier place given more time.
