Wonderful, sensual movie. The movie is not perfect, especially the ending is weird, but the young actors are great.

Subtle movie about a young man who walks away from home. He was adopted by a very strict couple, not easy when you're gay... With great acting by Tess Harper and Bonnie Hunt. And Kip Pardue looks great!

Wonderful movie about the coming out of the beautiful, smart and popular Matt. His parents are expecting a lot from him (marriage, good job, children), so coming out is far from easy. With great acting from all the actors (Jim Carrey, James Sikking, William McNamara etc.)
