Fine example of film making
21 January 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film show shows us the life of a young man Jack. He is a normal teenager, who's life is turned upside down after his parents divorce, and he discovers his father is in a gay relationship. Jack must now not only come to terms with his own problems as a teenager, but the realization that his parents are actual people too. Every actor in this movie is amazing, being a teenager myself I wasn't sure I would be interested in this sort of movie. The 'gay' story on the flipside of a heterosexual teen being identified as having a gay father and how he must deal with the social backlash, gave me a new perspective something not many movies to do tell well now days. The story is simply about a teenager coming to grips with the world around him. Using great story, terrific acting and brilliant filming techniques I think everyone should take a little time to watch this movie, and learn what it has to teach us while being entertained, 10/10
