”Ok. Let your head rest in my hand. Relax. I got you. I promise. I won't let you go. Hey man. I got you. There you go. Ten Seconds. Right there. You in the middle of the world”
A wonderfully shot, wonderfully acted tale of suppression of sexuality and the internal and external torture it causes to make oneself normal in a world that categorises anyone different as a minority. A human side that just isn't shown in modern Hollywood what so ever is caught by Jenkins rather phenomenally, it's captured with so much pride, dignity and honesty. The film from the on-set is a tough look into the life of a person seeking love and the reflection of a scorned society towards it. The performances are fantastic, especially the younger cast who are all terrific. All capture the inner demons and eventual release of emotions perfectly.
