Official Description

Amidst a backdrop of 1950s paranoia in Washington, D.C., two men are swept into a passionate love affair, just as Senator McCarthy ratchets up his hunt for “sexual subversives” in the government. Based on the best-selling book by Thomas Mallon, FELLOW TRAVELERS is both a story of the heart and a taut political thriller, creating an instant contemporary classic.
