Summary American philosopher Elbert Hubbard was fond of quoting his father on friendship. "When you die," his father would tell him, "if you've got five real friends, you've had a great life." Five Friends, written and directed by Erik Santiago, is the story of how one man sought to live that life. Beautifully shot, from the mountains of Southern California to the New England coastline, the film follows a 65-year-old man and his five closest friends as they navigate and reflect on success, conflict, marriage, divorce, fatherhood, children, and dying. From touching moments and humor to horrific tragedy and darkness, Five Friends offers a breathtaking exploration of the emotional lives of men, and a deeply moving portrait of what men are capable of when they dare to open up with one another. Features commentary from experts including bestselling author and renowned sociologist Michael Kimmel.
