Opposites attract in the always surprising dynamics of love. Of course, these unions usually create plenty of sparks, growing out of fierce differences. But there are also magical moments of repose when yin and yang are balanced. Alive & Kicking is set in London where Tonio (Jason Flemyng), a flamboyant HIV-infected dancer, meets Jack (Anthony Sher), a shy therapist. Against the terrifying backdrop of the AIDS nightmare, they struggle to define the requirements of a love relationship. Tonio has just lost his mentor to the disease, and Jack regularly counsels young men who live with a threat of early death. Dance and talking therapy are their talismans in a world of imminent crisis. Nancy Meckler directs this touching love story written by playwright Martin Sherman (Bent).
