The Way He Looks

The Way He Looks ★★★★½

Coming of age Challenge - Gay Coded Themes 

Spring Ting Challenge
Around The World In 80 Days - Brazil 

This has to be one of my favorite gay coming of age films. The story was so perfectly structured I enjoyed every minute of this developing on screen romance. It had all the best elements of a coming of age drama, high school teen angst, a bonding of best friends where one of them pines for the other, a slow development of a high school crush with homoeroticism, shower lock room scene with nudity, sexual awakening, it was just like a normal teen coming of age drama but better cause it was gay with a happy ending and didn’t include homophobia or awkward coming out tropes. I just had a lot of fun because I could just vibe with the experience of watching this gay romance blossom.
