Jitters Synopsis

An unexpected first kiss causes Gabriel to feel the electrifying "jitters" of love and lust with the free-spirited Marcus; a perfect way to end a Summer studying abroad. Realizing he is gay, Gabriel returns home and is immediately scrutinized by his family and friends who notice he’s different. But as the school year launches with Gabriel distracted with parties and his friends’ own dramas, Marcus returns, reigniting the hot, thrilling emotions of one’s first crush. Jitters fires head-first into the topsy-turvy world of first love with an attractive cast and pulsating soundtrack, making it a smartly refreshing journey into the queer, teen experience.

This reminded me a lot of BBC's Skins, not just because some of it is set in London, but in terms of the hard drinking and the occasional soap-opera nature of things - yet this comes across as the aim as it is geared towards a young audience (in that typically grim Scandinavian way). However Jitters is extremely well acted by an age-appropriate cast. It is totally original if not totally believable. For that reason I recommend it.

Janney I kinda miss Skins. Mostly just the ones with Kaya Scodelario on it, though. :)

  • The film was good, but it felt like it was lacking of some sort of deep meaning behind each scenes.
