Storyline

Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he's such a misfit - he's gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He's an outcast and the butt of classmates' fag jokes at high school. He's different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he's a "stereotypical gay." He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian's off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men. Written by Anonymous

Dialogue was very real
29 September 2005 | by (Flushing, New York) – See all my reviews

What I found particularly intriguing about this very enjoyable film was the honesty of the dialog. The characters spoke and acted the way real people would, or at least the way real people would if they were expressing what they were thinking. The characters were also not stereotypes. Even the father, who was the villain of the movie, was understandable as a person, however much one might disagree with his views. The older brother could have been made a less likable character if the film-makers had followed formulaic conventions, but they didn't. The result was more realistic if less dramatic. The situation of the main character, Dorian, was very true to the experience of many young people. The film was funny, genuine, real. I loved it.
