Coming out over the phone
20 April 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

When Damian decides that this will be the weekend that he comes out to his parents, he locks himself in by telling his mom that he's got something important to tell them when he gets home.

Unable or unwilling to wait, his parents call him repeatedly until the whole scene is played out over the phone.

While the film adequately captures all of the standard "sturm und drung" in the situation, there is nothing really new here. Its a good catharsis for those that need it but don't expect anything terribly new and revealing in this 17 minute short.
