Good Boys spans a decade in the lives of three college pals - good boys all - whose paths cross and recross as they approach thirtysomething still trying to sort out the little disturbances of man: the tangled webs of friendship, the wheat and chaff of profession, the gilded cage of sex, the slippery meaning of "good" in a world that isn't. As they move along the boundaries of their relationship and of life itself, they find that growing up is not least about the power of secrets, the secrets of permanence, and that indescribable shade of love and desire together. For Michael, it's the ghost of a sexual betrayal that wife, infant son, and professional success can't put to rest. For Drew, it's a private solitude not even he fully understands. For Chris, it's a man who brings him everything he thought he always wanted from life, a dialogue of intimacy that is just starting to make sense, when the black curtain of AIDS falls. For all of them - and for us - it's real life.
