Movie Info

A man struggles with his identity, his sexuality and his depression in this drama from Uruguay. Twenty-something Leo (Martin Rodriguez) sinks into a deep funk after his girlfriend leaves him, disappointed with his frequent bouts of impotence. Leo cuts himself off from the world and sublets a room from stoner Felipe (Rafael Soliwoda); Leo locks himself into his room and spends his days on the internet, frequently looking at gay dating sites. Leo meets Seba (Gerardo Begerez) and the two seem to hit it off; most of his friends and family suspected Leo was gay, and they offer support and encouragement, including his mother (Mirella Pascual). But Leo seems loathe to commit to anything, including his sexuality, and Seba becomes frustrated with Leo's inability to be open about their relationship. One day, Leo unexpectedly crosses paths with Caro (Cecilia Cosero), whom he dated when they were in grade school; she's fallen into a deep depression after a family crisis, and he's able to open his heart to her as a fellow lost soul. But in time Caro grows tired of Leo's eagerness to wallow in their shared depression, and with Seba at the end of his patience with their relationship, Leo realizes he has to make some decisions. El Cuarto de Leo (aka Leo's Room) was the first feature film from writer and director Enrique Buchichio. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

'Leo's Room' is quiet, shuffles on the screen and no one speaks above a whisper; but despite the subtlety, the flick has an obvious charm.
