CGiii Comment

Watch a truly remarkable and gifted young actor.

Marvel at a director who is at the top of his game

And...flog yourself to within inches of your life when you try to judge which is right and what is not.

In 1964, few would touch a story of this magnitude - the love between older and younger boys.

Today, paedophilia would be screamed - but, the love between boys is natural - boys plays with boys, girls play with girls...

It is encouraged, it is expected.

Where does one draw the line?

How many spirits, how many bright lights has the church extinguished?

This is a memoir from the gay activist and writer - our hearts bleed with and for you.

Simply astounding.
