It has taken nearly 30 years...getting this from stage to screen...I remember, I saw the play - in London with Martin Sheen - way back then...when my heart was ripped out.
30 years later...with all those friends gone, my heart shattered all over again - watching and remembering...when our carefree naïveté was unrelentingly pulled from under our stubborn feet.

Mr Kramer, Mr Murphy, Mr Pitt...you have done your duty.
For that...I, we, thank you.
