A spiritual sequel to Postcards from America, which opened at the Quad in 1995, McLean’s first film in 24 years is a playfully anachronistic, neon-tinged romp through a vividly imagined Soho—and a crash course in homoerotic art history. Blessed with “the face of an angel,” Jim (Harrison Dickinson, Beach Rats) is recruited by a band of intellectually-inclined hustlers, but his new career as an escort turned muse is complicated by Stendhal Syndrome, a rare psychosomatic disorder that renders him utterly helpless in the presence of great beauty.
