Test (2014) Trailer
Trailer for Test.
Set in San Franciso in 1985, when AIDS paranoia had reached a fever pitch just as a new test for the retrovirus had come into use, Test follows the fortunes of Frankie, the newest member of a fast-rising contemporary dance company, while the growing specter of AIDS is decimating the community around them. Frankie’s an outsider even within the group.
The bitchy choreographer (in one of the film’s clever undertones of wry humor) exhorts him to “dance like a man”, even though the milieu of the choreography is fraught with queer symbolism. When a troupe member falls ill and Frankie is called upon to fill his role things begin to change, and his relationship with a handsome veteran member of the company deepens in unexpected ways.
