“The Trip is an ambitious film that takes the viewer from Richard Nixon to Ronald Reagan and AIDS. Transitions between the years are bridged with period music and some terrific archival footage of early Pride marches, scenes with Harvey Milk, and – most welcome of all – that priceless moment when a gay activist shoved a pie in Anita Bryant's face.”
Michael D. Klemm, QueerCinema.com

  1. :

    “The Trip” is a typical coming of age story of two young men that follows their journey over two decades. Starting in the early 1970’s, every scene is true to the period and the dialogue is clever and witty without ever being pretentious or contrived. The acting is excellent and the main characters are all likable – even when they screw up. Director Miles Swain keeps the story tight with constant flashes of news clips as footnotes to the development of the two friends relationship. The latter half in the 1980’s is also accurate in its’ portrayal of gay life and we see the two main characters grow with each passing world event. At times hilariously funny and others, painfully heart-breaking, “The Trip” is a true balance of hilarity and tragedy that will move anyone.
