Manhattan-based writer Rich falls victim to AIDS in As Is. Virtually abandoned by friends and family, Rich is looked after by his gay lover, photographer Saul. Based on a play by William M. Hoffman, As Is wisely avoids editorial comment on the principals’ lifestyle, nor does it wallow in the tragedy of the situation.
