Pushing Dead: funny yet penetrating, buoyed by strong supporting performances

Tom is mentioned in a brief review for Pushing Dead, ahead of its screening at this weekend's NewFest in New York.

"Pushing Dead" Tom E. Brown's funny yet penetrating, "Pushing Dead" lets us into the world of an HIV positive man (James Roday), who has been so for 22 years and, due to ridiculous circumstances, is being denied insurance coverage for the meds that keep him alive.

Buoyed by strong supporting performances (Tom Riley, Danny Glover, Khandi Alexander and fabulous Robin Weigert), "Pushing Dead" can be described as a black comedy but unfortunately, the health care portion is quite serious and real.
