Definitely deserving of a 10./10.
28 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Hawaii's scarce use of dialogue may put you off at first, but the beautiful music that fills up the emptiness surely makes up for it. Every time they do speak, it's either something simple or profound. The overall "feel" of the film is homely and warm. The softness of their voices adds to it. The tension between the characters is totally palpable and frankly adorable. There isn't really any sexual content, which was a pleasant surprise to me. But I digress. Definitely don't watch this if you're in a rush. Take your time, rewatch it many times. Soak it up. There's a lot of heart in this movie that has you feeling a thousand things at once. The setting is beautiful, the camera work keeps things interesting, the acting is really natural and easy to watch, and when it's over you'll wish there was more. Hawaii avoids clichés while maintaining a kind-of-plot (the one down-side: not a whole lot going on besides two men falling in love, but I, personally, don't mind at all, and I don't think you will either). It's realistic and tender and just pretty neat! Definitely deserving of a 10/10.
