August 201386 minutes

A romantic drama directed by Rodney Evans (Brother to Brother) that focuses on two young NYC couples - one black and gay, one white and straight-whose lives become intertwined. Tired of dating Stan, Annie pretends to be seeing a female coworker. Heartbroken, Stan finds himself hooking up with Marcus, who just started having an open relationship with his long-term boyfriend, Aaron. As they explore new relationship norms, a chance encounter on a subway platform makes each of them reevaluate their sense of who they are and what they want. The film uses the multi-cultural ensemble to explore the questions that alternative twenty- and thirty-year olds face in a culture where there appears to be endless possibilities for sex but also a resistance to any definitive model for a 'proper' relationship.
