Boys in the Trees is a wonderful love letter to Halloween that explores friendship, growing up, and death. Magnificent to look at and devastating, it is a masterpiece.

[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.
