TRICK (1999) 20th Anniversary

Director: Jim Fall
Country: USA, Running Time: 89 min
TRICK follows the misadventures of two young gay men, trying to find a place to hook-up, one night in 1990’s Manhattan. It's lust at first sight when Gabriel (Christian Campbell), an aspiring Broadway musical writer, meets Mark (John Paul Pitoc), a sexy go-go dancer. After picking each other up on the subway, the duo spends the rest of the night trying to be alone, only to have their plans thwarted at every turn. There’s Gabriel’s annoying best friend Katherine (Tori Spelling), his selfish roommate Rich (Brad Beyer), the piano-bar crooner Perry (Steve Hayes), and a jealous drag queen (Clinton Leupp as Miss Coco Peru). Although they encounter several mishaps in a wild night that leaves the pair physically unsatisfied, when the sun rises, so does the possibility of a budding relationship.
