The Sum of Us

Tucson Weekly

DIRECTED BY: Geoff and Kevin Dowling Burton

REVIEWED: 04-27-95

In this Australian odd-couple comedy, a widower and his adult gay son struggle to coexist peaceably in the same house. The twist is that they get along fine; it's everyone else who can't handle their relationship. Though talky and dramatically limp, the performances are good-natured, and the film's example of harmony between homo- and heterosexuals is far more effective than that seen in other pictures (like Philadelphia).
