A HOME AT THE END OF THE WORLD chronicles the lives of Bobby and Jonathan, two childhood friends who meet as students in a suburban Ohio school. From the moment they meet, Bobby and Jonathan are inseparable. For Jonathan, the unconventional Bobby is a connection to a larger world. For Bobby, Jonathan's family - and in particular Jonathan's mother Alice - represents a kind of stability that he hasn't known.
As they grow up, the boys grow apart only to reunite in New York where, together with the free-spirited Clare, they invent a new kind of family. Based on the book by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham, who also wrote the screenplay, A HOME AT THE END OF THE WORLD looks at what we mean by love, commitment, and loyalty. Perhaps most importantly, it re-examines the idea of family, and in doing so shows us its very essence and the ways in which that essence can be redefined.
