How difficult can life be?
14 December 2016 | by laraphaSee all my reviews

A very sensitive film, it deals with the difficulties of coming of age. Besides the main character is gay, this little or nothing influences in his choices, for his parents are very liberal in the matter. The problem here is Thibodeaux (Mattew Lotto), the principal, who wants to find a prince charming and even doesn't accepts when he sees one. I found myself greatly identified by the movie, it has feelings that are very similar to mine, although I can hardly say I had parents even near his one. The performance of Thibodeaux is quite sensitive, That of Steve (Willian McChaell) quite sure, the gentle cock that accepts the difficulties of his partner. Together, they are a pair of dreams. All in all, it's an agreeable film, with little action and tending more to a drama-comedy that entertains, and leave the smelt that good things can come out of little.
