LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION!

What You Need To Know:

LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION! is a screen adaptation of a 1994 Tony award winning stage play. Containing virtually the same cast as the New York show, this three-act movie is about an ensemble of homosexuals during a summer at a country home. Gregory lives in a Victorian lakeside home with his blind lover Bobby. These hosts invite other homosexuals to spend a June weekend with them. Among the crowd is Buzz, played by Jason Alexander. Complications arise when some of the men have affairs with other men. Other men reveal that they carry the HIV virus. The drama comes to a close when Buzz reveals his interpretation of unconditional love.

Despite strong acting performances, this movie will only be appreciated by homosexuals. There is some graphic nudity and frank discussions of sex, homosexual kissing, and implied homosexual fornication. LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION! talks about relationships and life after accepting the politically correct lie that they are homosexuals. Drama, of course, thrives on conflict, and men, torn by infidelity, AIDS and the sickness that accompanies it are dramatically fertile territory for conflict. However, it is hard to have sympathy for the characters when their conflicts are self-inflicted by their lifestyle and behavior choices. Jesus Christ, the creator of all mankind, holds the greatest love, valour and compassion for them, and all who stray from the truth

More Detail:

LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION! is a screen adaptation of a 1994 Tony award winning stage play. Containing virtually the same cast as the New York show (except for Jason Alexander filling in for Nathan Lane), this three-act, staged movie about an ensemble of homosexuals differs from 1970’s THE BOYS IN THE BAND by not examining homosexuality, but examining the individual lives of homosexuals.

Gregory (Stephen Bogardus) lives in a Victorian lakeside home with his blind lover Bobby (Justin Kirk). Gregory is a choreographer and is proud of his work and home. These hosts invite other homosexual men to spend a June weekend with them, a reunion of old friends. Included are British composer John Jeckyll (John Glover), John’s new boyfriend Ramon (Randy Becker) and Buzz (Jason Alexander, best known as George on SEINFIELD). Buzz has memorized countless Broadway musicals and quotes them ad nausea. Other guests include Perry and Arthur who are celebrating their 14th anniversary this summer.

In midsummer, the men meet again, and at summer’s end, they meet for a final time. During these second and third meetings, complications arise when Ramon and Bobby have a torrid affair, shaking Gregory and John. John’s twin brother, James, also arrives (also played by John Glover). James is an AIDS sufferer who is emotionally and physically needy. (Viewers will try to spot the seams created by special effects which allow John Glover to play two characters on the screen at one time.) Buzz and James finally share secrets to one another, revealing their interpretation of unconditional love.

Despite strong acting performances and a simple plot, this movie will only be appreciated by homosexuals. (Jason Alexander need not do anything more for the homosexual community to garner their support.) There is some graphic nudity and frank discussions of sex, homosexual kissing and implied homosexual fornication. THE BOYS IN THE BAND was preoccupied with how men became homosexual, the backstories of becoming homosexuals. LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION!, however, talks about relationships and life after men accept their homosexuality, or rather, accept the accepted lie.

Drama, of course, thrives on conflict, and men, torn by infidelity, AIDS and the sickness that accompanies it are dramatically fertile territory for conflict. The conflict and the solid acting make this movie entertaining to the point of examining a narrow scope of human experience, but it is hard to have sympathy and respect for the characters when their conflicts are self-inflicted by their lifestyle and behavior choices. Jesus Christ, the creator of all mankind, holds the greatest love, valour and compassion for them, and all who stray from the truth.
