The beautiful scenery is a plus, good cinematography. The story is pleasant, but the dialogue is awkward at times. But over all, it is a very sensitively made, a thoughtful and beautiful film. The acting is good, great score.
I've seen dozens of gay movies and these ridiculous "coming of age/coming out" movies are always the worst. The only positive thing I can think of for this movie is that the actor who portrayed Clifford was very easy on the eyes. Sadly, one cute guy does not a movie make.
Sweet but predictable. Not to mention what felt like a weakly written screenplay. I have no problem with low budget, that's not the issue here. I can't quite put my finger on it. Was it the acting? The storyline? I don't know, the movie just felt kind of "meh". I've seen a lot better.
Directing was average - the cinematography was beautiful but was used too much as filler. Writing was average yet the 2 fine leads made the script work. I'm not religious so the story did not resonate but the actors made the situation believable. All that said, I would highly recommend the movie based on the lead acting alone. The sex scene was one of the most believable and intimate scenes I've seen in a gay themed movie - you actually felt that they were dealing with their first time in lieu of lurid sex.
The acting in this "movie" is probably the worst I have seen in my life. The people that perform in it are not actors and the thing itself I should not dare call a movie because what it amounts to is something that is well below the classification of movie or film. Horrible.
A lot disappointing. Good christian boys do not get to find love and keep love. The scenes of the two boys together are wonderful and really romantic, but why not have to one boy return from Barcelona, when he learns that the love of his life is not going to christian make-over therapy. A better ending and it gets 4.5 stars, but as is it is to average.
