In More Than Friends, Friends follows an unlikely friendship between two men who slowly fall in love with each other. At a gay club one night, Bobby Leiber (Billy Eichner) bumps into Aaron (Luke Macfarlane) – who is shirtless. The two strike up a conversation and end up building a relationship over their sarcastic superiority over the vapidity of the gay club that surround them. Aaron is a corporate lawyer, but out of touch with queer culture and politics – causing Bobby to seriously doubt whether Aaron is really gay. Initially, there isn’t exactly much chemistry or connection between the two, other than their shared discomfort with vulnerability. But as time passes, the two end up opening up to themselves, telling about their lives, aspirations and vulnerabilities. The film also portrays their families, the family dynamics of a messy queer family, where people discuss views on identity politics.
