Movie Info

A group of four young, black, gay men and their lesbian best friend arrange to meet up in New York City one year after their graduation from Brown University. Their plans for a weekend of fun start off well, relaxed in each other's company as only old friends can be. But old tensions quickly resurface. Drinking, drugs, hidden desire and the demands of promiscuity put friendship, trust and even lives at risk. In between sharp one-liners and a great soundtrack there's a few important lessons that these pleasure-seekers must learn for themselves. Written with a real sense of the demands of urban living, these bright and believable characters will remind you of someone you know. -- (C) Official Site

September 23, 2020 | Rating: 3.0/4.0 | Full Review…

The Skinny is a fun and enjoyable 100 minutes with several interweaving story elements at varying degrees of drama handled with far more aplomb than Polk's earlier, more groundbreaking work.
