Director William Friedkin and playwright Mart Crowley serve up the acclaimed, groundbreaking film adapted from Crowley's hallmark off-Broadway play - a witty, perceptive and devastating look at the personal agendas and suppressed revelations swirling among a group of gay men in Manhattan. Harold (Leonard Frey) is celebrating a birthday, and his friend Michael (Kenneth Nelson) has drafted some friends to help commemorate the event. As the evening progresses, the alcohol flows, the knives come out, and Michael's demand that the group participate in a devious telephone game unleashes dormant and unspoken emotions in this "humane, moving picture" (TIME). Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the play with the brilliantly remastered DVD available November 11!
