Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It is a disarmingly and consistently sensitive movie that remains engaging even when its reach sometimes exceeds its grasp.
Fresh: Constructive in the way it invites viewers to consider and discuss issues of intolerance and hypocrisy, even as it encourages those who don't fit the straight, marriage-oriented paradigm to embrace their own identities.
Fresh: Given its compact running time, the film proves a surprisingly rich experience, one that effectively balances hope and possibility with some of the harsher realities of disenfranchised LGBTQ youth.
Fresh: Cardasis brings a sensitive eye to the subject, painting a textured picture of Ulysses' solitude and his hunger for self-knowledge.
It was just so so good. Please go see it!
A slice of reality...
...told simply. I
I have to say though, I loved seeing gay and transgender performers of color on screen in starring roles. They don't get the opportunity.
I simply wish the story aimed a little higher in the storytelling. It remained a little predictable. However, Kudos for wrapping that in a musical! That part was hella unique!
