The Velocity of Gary (1998)

Directed by : Dan Ireland

Chad Role : Kid Joey

Dan Ireland directed this romantic comedy-drama (adapted by James Still from his own play) about a romantic triangle.

Gary is a street hustler who’s just trying to make it to the next day. But a seismic shift occurs in his life when he meets Valentino,

an actor in porn movies and even more of a castaway than Gary. In addition to their ever-precarious living situation, the budding relationship must contend with a free-spirited waitress named Mary Carmen, who’s Valentino’s girlfriend and never very far away.

Gary is in love with porn star Valentino, but Valentino has a girlfriend, who also loves him. They maintain a sometimes uneasy three-way relationship, until Valentino falls victim to AIDS.
