Chloë Grace Moretz,
Milford's film is pure genius, the film creates its own world, totally original and real, you can see into the shadows and see whatever you want. It's like a dream but still has a story that reaches a real climax. the cast is perfect and multi-ethnic, a real surprise for films like this. not a frame is out of place or too long.
i saw a battered old video tape that was passed around like a cheap whore and it still looked good, I'm sure if u are lucky to see an original DVD or see it projected you are in for a real treat. the fact that it is a gay film should not scare people, the story is universal. the music is also a real treat. this is the kind of film u can watch over and over again or leave it playing on your TV as cool video art.
