Hard Pill

Writer-director John Baumgartner blends sci-fi and social commentary in this thought-provoking drama about a new pharmaceutical that “cures” homosexuals. Jonathan Slavin gives a memorable performance as a gay man, frustrated by his miserable track record with lovers, who agrees to participate in clinical trials; his decision alienates a gay friend who considers the treatment fascist but tantalizes a female coworker who's long had a crush on him. The story is occasionally contrived but works out better than one might expect. 95 min.
