Go To
A late-90s comedy about love, friendship, and the fluidity of sexuality. It stars Kevin McKidd as Leo, a homosexual man who has just turned 30. Despairing for his social life, he joins a men's support group to explore himself. Along the way he meets Brendan, who is currently living with his ex-girlfriend Sally (coincidentally an old schoolmate of Leo's) and who is also looking for something more. The film also follows Leo's flatmates, Angie (Julie Graham) and Darren (Tom Hollander), as they navigate their own lives.

This film provides examples of:

  • Erotic Dream: Leo doesn't want to dream about Brendan and asks Angie for something unsexy to read. She recommends Jane Austen. Leo falls asleep and dreams that he and his flatmates are characters having a dreary, stuffy tea party. Then Brendan shows up, dressed as Mr. Darcy. With a whip.
  • Everyone Is Bi: Well, not quite everyone, but a large number of the characters. Sort of the film's fundamental hypothesis re: humanity at large.
