Garnering significant praise from both fans and critics in its two-season run, the HBO comedy series Looking focuses primarily on a group of gay friends, where the themes are ones that everyone, gay and straight, can relate to: falling in love, finding professional fulfilment, forging an identity in a complicated world and searching for happiness.
Looking offers up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends--Patrick (Jonathan Groff), Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez) and Dom (Murray Bartlett)--living and loving in modern-day San Francisco. The trio's stories intertwine and unspool dramatically as they search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices--and rights--for gay men. Also important to the Looking mix is the progressive, unpredictable, sexually open culture of the Bay Area, with real San Francisco locations serving as a backdrop for the group's lives.
The acclaimed series concludes with Looking: The Movie, which follows Patrick, who after living in Denver for nearly a year, returns to San Francisco to celebrate the wedding of old friends. In the process, he must face the relationships he left behind and make difficult choices about what's truly important to him.
