A nice love story
16 February 2018 | by Lugo1989See all my reviews

These are quite good times for LGBT films. 2017 saw a lot of solid releases and Becks can be easily counted amongst them. It is a simple, honest story that deals with sometimes complicated feelings of love, confussion, heartbreak and being stuck in life. The characters and situations all feel real and authentic so you do care about them and wonder how it is all going to end for them. Do not be worried by the sudden drop of rating on this site. It is currently at 5.7 and definitely deserves more, plus, the rating is much higher on most other film sites. The performances are really nice as well and another thing that especially stands out are the heartfelt, good music performances by Lena Hall. Kudos to the songwriters. Becks will appeal to everyone who enjoy small character driven indie films that deal with real feelings and real-life situations.
