A Home at the End of the World Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Directed by [[Performer~P430042~Michael Mayer~michaelmayer]] and based on [[Feature~V272631~The Hours~thehours]] author [[Performer~P352280~Michael Cunningham~michaelcunningham]]'s novel of the same name, A Home at the End of the World chronicles the 1980s reunion of childhood best friends Bobby ([[Performer~P22766~Colin Farrell~colinfarrell]]) and Jonathan ([[Performer~P343925~Dallas Roberts~dallasroberts]]). Where they were once best pals -- and teenage lovers -- in the suburbs of Cleveland, Bobby has become a charismatic but go-nowhere heterosexual slacker, and Jonathan is now living as an openly gay man in New York City, hoping to serve as father to his eccentric roommate Clare's ([[Performer~P77633~Robin Wright Penn~robinwrightpenn]]) child. When Bobby impulsively moves to the city to be closer to his former friend, their bonds are tested sooner than anyone would have thought. Bobby falls for Clare, and in doing so, effectively eliminates what would have been Jonathan's position in the baby's life. Jonathan temporarily takes off; when his father dies, and he attends the Arizona funeral, Bobby and Clare unexpectedly turn up with the news that she's expecting. Despite the still-existent tensions, the trio becomes a family unit among themselves, ultimately buying a house in Woodstock, Upstate New York, where they all move together, challenging traditional notions of family, commitment, love, and devotion. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
