I caught this film at a gay/lesbian film festival and was blown away.Every so often, a film comes out that is so original that you can'thelp but wonder why no one has ever thought of it before. "Hard Pill"asks this question: What would happen if a pill was invented that couldturn a gay person straig...
I started watching this movie while sitting one evening channelsurfing. It caught my interest...and, at the end I said, WOW! I veryseldom say WOW to a movie! There was laughter and there were tears.That is pretty rare in a movie these days. The initial premise is apill which makes a gay guy go strai...
If there was a pill that would change gays into straight, would youtake it? If so, what would the effects be? Those are two of thepertinent questions in the excellent sci-fi flic Hard Pill. Tim(Jonathan Slavin) is a sad little cubicle monkey. His personal life isa disaster. He pines for guys he does...
Don't let the title fool you. HARD PILL is not one of those Showtimemovies that tackles a modern morality issue at the expense ofcharacter, plot and general viewer enjoyment. Yes, the underlying storyis of a young gay man who joins a medical study to test a pill to turnhim straight. But the premise ...
This movie was a free Logo offering on my Comcast On-Demand that Ihappened to pick at random. What a lucky choice I made. It's hard forme to convey concisely how this movie moved me. As another commentermentioned, it is a low-budget type film but that makes this even morepowerful and poignant. What ...
Caught this film on cable TV by chance and, by waiting through thefirst thirty minutes for something interesting to develop, enjoyed itthoroughly.At first glance or upon first contemplating the underlying notion thatTim's angst was perhaps the result of some sort of malady for whichthere was a "cure...
I'm very glad I watched this, because I had been somewhat leery due tothe premise. I expected a low-budget alternative movie with strained,over-the-top comedy, and that's not what you get. This is agood-looking, sophisticated movie with an incredible depth of talent inthe cast--virtually all of whom...
This film is both original and surprising. It sounds like a gay sci-fiflick by it's premise, but it is not; The more you watch it the moreyou are drawn into the complicated and interesting plot.I have to say that I have enjoyed the film immensely. I watched it athome actually, and I was shocked to f...
The writer, John Baumgartner, had an original idea, but failed to makeit work. That a pill would change a person's sexuality. A gay man, inhis 30s, all of a sudden decides he's tired of being rejected in thebars and in life. So, why not turn straight? Then no more problems.Alas in life it doesn't wo...
Sweet, well-intended comedy/drama examining sexuality and love. A company comes out with a pill to make gay men straight and Tim (avery good Jonathan Slavin) decides to try it, since there is a painfullack of romance in his life as a gay man, while a number smart womenseem to like him. This leads to...
A friend of mine got me to see this film. He said he was worried that Iwould find this film sad. Actually, I didn't find the film itself sad.I found the film to be boring, badly acted, and not very cohesive.What's sad is that a film with a great story idea fails to deliver.Problem #1: the lead chara...
Hapless 33-year-old gay man with only a few friends volunteers to takea new drug which promises to make him heterosexual. The trouble withthis premise is, the central character (inhibited and wounded) would beunhappy in any sexual environment, either with a woman or another man.Writer-director John ...
The premise was intriguing and I think I thought it was a documentarybut unfortunately it wasn't.What if gay men had the medical intervention, through ananti-depressant like pill to change their orientation from gay tostraight? Would it be a morally acceptable choice? Is it realistic tothink a lot o...
