CGiii Comment

Angsty teens, angsty parents...it's just too damned angsty!

It takes half the film for this young man to come out...you'd think then...things might brighten up...not in a month of Sundays!

It certainly paints a bleak and miserable picture for gay youth...throw into the mix, a vile pederast and a crumbling marriage...

It really is 86 minutes of abject misery!

The(ir) Blurb...

When 17 year old Milan wrecks his father’s car, drunk, his parents imagine the worst. They are relieved to find out he’s ‘just’ gay: not a problem for modern, well-adjusted parents like them. Or is it? With a brilliant cast and sensitive screenplay, this turns the classical coming-out film into something far more relevant, modern and relatable.
