A film by Ira Sachs
Starring Thure Lindhardt, Zachary Booth, Julianne Nicholson, Souleymane Sy Savane

An emotionally and sexually charged journey of two men in New York City through love, friendship, and addiction.

Documentary filmmaker Erik (acclaimed Danish actor Thure Lindhardt in his first leading role in a U.S. film) and closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth, Damages) meet through a casual encounter, but soon find a deeper connection and become a couple. Individually and together, they are risk takers—compulsive, and fueled by drugs and sex.

In an almost decade­‐long relationship defined by highs, lows, and dysfunctional patterns, Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries and dignity while being true to himself.

Out of lost love comes a terrific work of art; it’s the oldest story in the world, but it always feels new when it’s done right.Salon.com
