I will keep it brief and let the critics do the talking.. both positive and negative... This film about the Global AIDS Epidemic is beautiful, powerful and cruel. The point drives home in this 3 story feature that AIDS is affecting ALL OF US!.. The photography is stunning and the acting is above par... Dont expect this to be your popcorn makeout film... be prepared to be taken on a journey that might not end up so pleasent in the end..but never the less.. Hitting Home!

3 NEEDLES stars Lucy Liu, Chloe Sevigny, Shawn Ashmore, Sandra Oh, Stockard Channing, Sook-Yin Lee and Olympia Dukakis. Directed by Thom Fitzgerald (The Hanging Garden). 3 Needles opens on Friday, December 1, 2006 in conjunction with World AIDS Day.

We all face a common enemy. 3 NEEDLES tells three stories from the global AIDS crisis.

- In China, a black market blood collection scheme causes an outbreak in a rural village.
- In Montreal, a porn actor hides his HIV status leading his family down a shocking path.
- And, in Africa, a novice nun makes a desperate sacrifice to protect the health of plantation workers.
