gay youth coming to terms with their sexuality
6 December 2001 | by (maarten10) – See all my reviews

From the co-directors of the camp hit Desperate Remedies comes One of Them. Set in Auckland, New Zealand 1964, two awkward and sissified teens strike up a friendship based on being misfits in this highly stylized and satisfying film. The boys go off on a hike filled with flashbacks to all of their experiences. They dye and spray their hair, giggle incessantly, and ogle over a male pop star, but God forbid if they are "one of them." One day these boys just can't stop staring at the school hunk as he gets out of the pool, the words come slowly - and it sounds like it might be "he's gorgeous", but instead its "he's repulsive." No fear, they deal with their sexuality by film's end in this excellent portrayal of gay youth establishing an identity for themselves.
