A Little Closer ★★★

"I got a girl. She fucks me any way I like it."

This is such a sad, yet accurate portrayal of so many adolescents and those they have to look up to. We're all deeply flawed and lost - our sexuality and loneliness right in the middle.

It's worth noting that there would be no "Hide Your Smiling Faces" without this film. Carbone's evolution is as visible Petock's in this lovely and completely unpretentious directorial debut.
