Trivia

When Adrian takes Andrew to the movies, they eventually see A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985). This "Nightmare" became infamous after its initial release due to the homoerotic subtext of the film - protagonist Jesse (played by now openly gay actor Mark Patton) struggles the whole movie with being overwhelmed and manipulated by Freddy Krueger, which has been seen by many scholars and horror fans as how gay people struggle with accepting themselves in less than hospitable places, i.e. how Adrian is struggling with telling his family he's gay or has AIDS or how its suggested Andrew may be gay/bisexual as well. Also, when they're inside the theater watching the movie, the entire audience is made up of men, most of whom look to be discreet couples. See more »

Quotes

Adrian Lester: You're gonna have some tough days; days where you feel like everything sucks, and you don't wanna get out of bed; days when you gonna feel like you just don't belong. I've had a lot of those days. And I want you to know; you are not the only one that feels the way you do. There's a whole world out there for someone like you. I promise you are not as different as you think you are. And mom and dad that might not get it; all of your friends might not get it either, and some of them might say some...

Beautiful film
10 June 2019 | by petrinevilmunSee all my reviews

I really loved the movie, it made me cry a lot and made me think about it many days after. It was quite confusing to me, and there could have been more "power" in the film, meaning that at some scenes, it seemed a bit weak, which is why I'm not giving it a full 10. I really liked the grey and white filter and how it's all kind of building up to the moment of truth. Overall, really great and beautiful film.
