Can love thrive despite a two-decade age gap, a HIV+ diagnosis, and differing levels of cosmopolitan savoir-faire? Perhaps in Paris in the early 1990s, as Sorry Angel’s characters demonstrate. Vincent Lacoste is Arthur, the bookish bi/curious ingénue, while Pierre Deladonchamps plays Jacques, a world-weary novelist. Together they negotiate the tribulations of gay love in the early 1990s when romantic opportunities were hindered by multiple medical and social complications. Selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Christophe Honoré’s work effectively pulls on the audience’s heart strings.
