Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
Colin Farrell proves again that he's becoming a really fine actor, but he can't quite save this film from being much more than a well-intentioned gay soap opera.

A Home at the End of the World
The story follows the lives of Bobby and Jonathan, two boyhood best friends played as teens by Harris Allan and Erik Smith, and as adults by Colin Farrell and Dallas Roberts. We watch them from the '60s in high school, where Bobby's taken in after losing his family, by Jonathan's mom Alice (Sissy Spacek). Bobby introduces her to the joys of marijuana, which she smokes almost eagerly at first with the two boys, and the three of them dance about the room in the most delightful scene in this entire film. A relationship develops between the boys that's part friendship, part romance, and all teen age exuberance. After being separated for years, the friends reunite in New York in the '80s. Farrell still wearing the vestiges of his glory days as a hippie, but as they renew their friendship, there's a new wrinkle thrown into the mix; it's Jonathan's roommate Robin Wright Penn, a free spirit with flaming red hair who comes to love them both in her own way, despite their somewhat ambiguous relationship with each other. This independent film was directed by first-timer Michael Mayer, and scripted by Pulitzer Prize winning Michael Cunningham (The Hours) from his novel of the same name.
