Heartwarming yet Heartbreaking
4 June 2015 | by philyew-59145See all my reviews

Watching this short you have to look beyond the acting which, is perhaps not the best and through to the storyline. An incredibly difficult topic for any young boy to approach in real life, at 14 the character Ian is being torn apart by what he knows to be something which will shatter his Mom. All he wants in the world is to continue to be the apple of his Mom's eye. Her response to his coming out as Gay tears him apart. I shed many tears for him while watching this film and personally remember facing similar reaction to my own coming out. I felt every minute of this short film and, for an actor so young to be able to carry this off with such realism is simply amazing. I think this young man has a tremendous future ahead of him. Thank you Daniel for carrying this off so well.
