During the camping trip pool scene, the pool side chairs which Gabriel and Leo go to sit down on are a noticeable distance apart in the long shot. When the shot changes to a close up, they are right beside each other. See more »
I was thinking about the exchange program you talked about.
Really, but you can't talk while you're shaving.
I'm trying to understand your desire to go so far away. I think it's natural, especially at your age, to want to see other places, meet new people, make other friends.

First of all I feel like this is a must see movie, because although It's simple and nice but It's very sweet, relatable and bigger than the sum of its parts. This movie is most of all about being a teenager. Yes the main character is gay and blind, but he's only going through the process every teenager goes through in discovering himself. His unique perspective however is what makes this movie so amazing and moving. I loved this movie because it reminded me of what being a teenager is like, It will provoke in you a roller coaster of feelings and introduce you very realistically into Leo's life. The film feels very real, the cast is amazing and the chemistry between the leads is perfect, but what I liked most of all is the way the fact that the lead is gay and has a disability is handled. It's almost incidental and very subtle in the way it's introduced. Leo is not a poster kid and neither his sexuality nor his blindness define him.
