This is a good film for teachers. It involves a story that is of interest to students (a relationship between two gay high school students in Africa). It shows both the Western side (big city; the boys are enrolled in a prep school) and traditional side (one boy's mother sends him to a traditional healer to cure him of his homosexuality) of Africa. It raises interesting issues relating to homosexuality (the boys' peers are accepting of the relationship, but their parents are not) and race (a white character has a black mother -- it is unclear at first whether the character is white, or just the actress). Also, it has a somewhat surprising ending. Finally, it should be viewed before being shown to a class; highly sensitive parents might object to the fact that there are a couple of kissing scenes between the boys; there are also one or two oblique references to anal sex.
