Delightful film
22 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

I was very touched by the simpleness yet powerful thoughts of Alone with Mr. Carter. Makes you reflect on the subtleties of life and the impact that one person can have on another. In a world were some are still afraid, a young boy finds the courage to confront what some are still questioning...to love of another person of the same sex. A true reflection of what some live everyday. I found this short quite refreshing and "real" I was quite moved by the performance of the young boy. I found him very convincing and felt the pain he felt when trying to decide how he will express his feelings to the older man. In all the ensemble was very dynamic and was well casted. A true gem Thank you

:)
