The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • In one shower scene, Gabriel, who has stripped down (we see his bare rear), walks Leo to the shower heads. Leo, being blind, doesn't see Gabriel naked, but Gabriel steals surreptitious glances at Leo, which leads to a close-up shot of Leo's rear, while they are having a bath. Gabriel later walks away, and covers himself with a towel, implying that he has an erection.
  • The film culminates in both boys acknowledging their love for each other, and publicly sharing a romantic kiss and holding hands. The film also depicts the acceptance of their relationship by the lead's best friend, who is shown to be in love with the lead initially.
