Love and Death on Long Island

Richard Kwietniowski Price: $15.95

Containing many scenes that were subsequently cut from the final edit, this is the screenplay adaptation of Gilbert Adair's novel. The film tells the unlikely tale of the obsession harboured by reclusive London novelist Giles De'ath, played by John Hurt, for hunky but not very talented American teen pin-up Ronnie Bostock, played by Jason Priestly, after seeing him in an appalling movie. Unquestionably hetro until his wife died, and barely cognisant of the ways of the modern technological world, let alone Long Island (where he fetches up in a desperate attempt to meet his unwitting beloved), De'ath is simultaneoulsy embarrassed, confused, tormented and rejuvenated by his infatuation.
