A Home at the End of the World

Jonathan Glover (Dallas Roberts) -- A Home at the End of the World (2004)

In another film adaptation of a Michael Cunningham novel, Jonathan Glover (Dallas Roberts) and Bobby Morrow (Colin Farrell) experience an intense, borderline-romantic friendship that began in their teens and follows them from the suburbs of '70s Cleveland to Manhattan's East Village to Woodstock, N.Y., in the early 1980s. When Jonathan, a sexually active gay man, discovers what appear to be Kaposi's sarcoma lesions, his AIDS diagnosis seems inevitable to a 2004 audience. However, the centerpiece of this film isn't AIDS, but rather the puzzling and often touching love triangle between Jonathan and his roommates Bobby and Clare (Robin Wright) -- which leads to a lot of conflict and a baby. In the end, this film challenges the traditional notion of what constitutes a "real" family in America.
