Common plot and concept. There's still a lotrnof room for improvement but it works as a coming of age film. It reflects thernmodern dilemmas of young people's fear of coming out and not being enough to bernaccepted as they are. One good point -- it was well-acted. Cinematography isrnpleasant and the cuts work. It just doesn't present anything new to me at thernmoment.

When you get to the credits you'll understand why this understated film is really rather good.  There's a whole load of very high production values deeply embedded in this down to earth yet broad reaching film.  You can't make a short film like this without deep pockets and access to a whole host of clever people and expensive resources. Now, as it goes, I was going through the same process as the lead at about the time this film is set.   A few gentle cliches aside, they've caught the atmosphere of the time, and the stifling oppression of 'suburbia', brilliantly.   Alexander, the lead,  is enigmatic and sexy at the same time.  That's a tricky thing to pull off.  Kate Reid's photography also caught my eye.Well worth a watch - if only to remind a different generation of how some things have and others haven't changed.
