Summary
"Casting aside a certain and comfortable future, Sam Wagstaff became a curator with a taste for unique and controversial photography. In photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, who was 25 years his junior, he found not only a romantic partner, but an artistic collaborator. This compelling documentary explores the relationship between the two men during the 1970s and '80s and their influence over the New York art"--Turner Classic Movies website.
