... its hallucinatory imagery anchored by realistically profane teen dialogue and a tragic LGTBQ subtext.

It feels like an urban legend told at a slumber party - earnest and creepy with a plot twist you see coming - but first-time writer/director Nicholas Verso's delight is palpable.

A wonderful feature debut from a filmmaker who is sure to be somebody to watch very closely.

May 3, 2017 | Full Review…

"Boys in the Trees" is ambitious, inventive and has its eyes set on being an Australian answer to Rian Johnson's "Brick" or Greg Araki's "Mysterious Skin."

[A] defining scream in the dark for people to listen to the voices and the stories of queer youth, which are often told without spoken words.

Verso packs his film with memorable moments, but often they feel like they're simply stacked one atop the next without any dramatic drive or progression. But that's how being a teen feels like sometimes.
