The most moving and inspiring movie I have seen about the AIDS epidemic's effect on individual people (though I would also recommend the excellent documentary Common Threads). It has a lot to say about the wider LGBT rights struggle, and about the ability of truth, honesty and openness to break down prejudice, fear and hatred.
So many moving parts of this film and nice little touches - not least when his sister reads Pedro a `fan-letter' from an 80-odd year old woman who says she never knew any gay people and didn't care much for them, but that she (and everyone else in her care home) are hooked on The Real World (the MTV show in which Pedro is one of the stars), rooting for Pedro and praying for a cure for AIDS.
OK, we're in no doubt who the good guys are in this film, but the LGBT rights movement needs, if not heroes, then at least (in Harvey Milk's words) people to give us HOPE. Pedro's life gives me hope. Please watch and share this film!
