On the road, anything can happen. And in this ambitious, terrifically entertaining gay epic, it does! Romance, politics, sex and humor all collide during two men's 11-year journey of passion, self-discovery and adventure. Tommy (Steve Braun) is a sexy, blond gay activist who meets the handsome, muscular Alan (Larry Sullivan), a closeted Republican, at a party in 1973. An intense love affair ignites, setting in motion a torrid and unpredictable relationship that steers its way through the turbulent political and social climate of the '70s and '80s. The Trip blends farce and tragedy, fantasy and reality and features a quirky cast of supporting characters including indie-fave Alexis Arquette, comedienne Julie Brown, and former Bond-girl Jill St. John as Alan's outrageous mom. The Trip is one excursion that's definitely worth taking.
