Audience Reviews for Rites of Passage


Leo L

Super Reviewer

How far will a person go to feel loved and accepted? The fact that he's gay is only another factor, not the core issue. Very well acted; strong story; unique, suspenceful, interesting and intense.

Love love looooved it! It always kept me guessing, and it dealt with matters that I love to see dealt with (but don't see depicted cinematically very often). Unique and interesting and suspenseful. Best movie I've seen in a while.
