CGiii Comment

After a shaky start, some unintelligible dialogue [subtitles would help] starts to settle.

And...when it does, it hits hard, scene, in particular, could have been held other, could have gone much, much further. As unpleasant - even horrific - as it is...there's no denying the emotional wallop nor the vast talent it delivers.

Work hard...and, this could be developed into the next Sweet Sixteen! Work even harder...and, it could be better than 16!


The(ir) Blurb...

After a night of intoxication, a hungover and hysterical Nick wakes up next to his boyfriend Charlie and must conceal him from his own homophobic and dysfunctional family.
