Twitter Capsule: Not sure I'm in love with last act, but it's a funny and lived-in queer portrait till then and vents some ugly emotions.

VOR:   Anyone invested in New York gentrification, non-normative reproduction, LGBT narratives, and/or Silva's burgeoning career will find much to ponder here. Others may shrug it off.
