Who’s Gonna Love Me Now is not just the name of this film, it is also perhaps the most important question within it. After all, for a young man who is diagnosed with HIV, it’s a fairly pertinent question. Factor in being disowned by your own family, and you’ve taken your first steps in Saar Maoz’s shoes. The focus of Saar’s love isn’t actually another man, but rather his search for reconciliation with his own family in Israel. Ejected from home when he was 23 by a society where homosexuality can still be the gravest of sins, he rebuilds his life in London. It’s here where we pick up his amazing story and get a glimpse of his incredible resilience in the face of adversity.
Who’s Gonna Love Me Now? is an outstanding piece of filmmaking. It reminds the audience that not every great story is invented in the mind of a Hollywood scriptwriter, and some of the best involve real people. Saar’s story is moving and relevant, and it should be shared with as many people as possible.
