Although Marans's script is slightly overstuffed (with a running time of 2 hours and 15 minutes), Nacer and McGarrahan glow in their portrayal of the relationship between these two very different lovers. Nacer's turn as Gernreich requires more than just an excellent Viennese accent and a trim black turtleneck, although of course Nacer manages both of those; his show-stealing moment occurs when Gerrnreich must choose, once and for all, between a life of public rebellion with Hay and a successful career creating his art. In order to succeed in the design world, Gerrnreich must "play straight." It's a decision that no one should ever have to make, and Nacer's performance brings this point home with tender sincerity.
