Adam and Steve
Adam and Steve met in the 1980s, a time of big hair and bad drugs. Their initial encounter didn't go well, so it's just as well they don't remember. But now they meet again, both a little older although not much smarter-and with a lot more baggage. "Adam and Steve" follows the trajectory of a relationship that started like a joke and just kept getting funnier. With the help of their friends, formerly obese stand-up comic Rhonda and straight-guy ladies man Michael, Adam and Steve struggle to make love work in the face of almost overwhelming obstacles, including a dog with an eating disorder, accident-prone parents, roving homophobes and the nagging feeling they've met before. Actor Craig Chester has adapted his own screenplay for the new film of the same name.
Opening in spring 2005 around the country, the film stars Chester, Malcolm Gets, Parker Posey and Chris Kattan.
Craig Chester is an actor ("Swoon," "Kiss Me Guido," "Frisk," "I Shot Andy Warhol") and author ("Why the Long Face?"). He lives in New York City.
