Critic Reviews for À cause d'un garçon (You'll Get Over It)
You can see the emotions of the characters pass through the actors' faces and bodies. Mr. Baumgartner shines brightest, perhaps because his character is the most conflicted.
There's a naturalness to the entire cast, yet there is considerable depth to the portrayals, and the interplay between the characters is exceptionally rich and nuanced.
This fast-paced, well-acted film brings emotional integrity to a familiar tale.
There are countless teenagers living secret lives right now, and they don't need hurrahs. They need honesty -- and better films than this.
Does anybody care?
Even if [it] has a slightly mustry, afterschool special message to impart...the picture delivers it with sufficient charm and complexity to escape TV-movie mediocrity.
A sensitive coming-of-age story that, while not trailblazing in terms of originality, manages to be quietly affecting.
A well-done version of an old tale - they manage to make it interesting and Julien Baumgartner makes it feel like his personal story.
Genuinely engaging performances from Baumgartner and Maravalidealized are kind of wasted in this idealized and dramatically weightless coming(-out)-of-age story...
The story's celebration of honesty is commendable, even if the treatment of homophobia is no deeper than the hero's swimming pool.
Resonates with earnest truthfulness and packs a surprising dramatic punch.
