writer and also director
There's no other way of really reviewing this movie other than to be an asshole about it.
I've never seen anything work so incredibly hard to be liked only to come off as homophobic anyway.
These folks are um, pretty advanced in their lifestyles to suddenly be thrown into a gay conversion camp.
The least likely person to be put in that position is spoken about like a irresistible forbidden fruit and it's so untrue that it's almost bullying??
Life isn’t all moonlight & movies.
Well, why can’t it be?
A wonderful movie crafted in a beautiful old style way - elegant and lowkey.
Isabelle Huppert doing what she does best: playing a fucking bitch.
Every single performance is absolutely perfect. The material could obviously be cheap and hokey in the wrong hands but Fabian treats it with such respect that you have no choice but to fall in love with Manville's Harris.
Have gotten so used to queer material really favoring explicit content that the conservatism of this short felt like it's strongest quality. It is ROMANTIC. The kiss towards the end is one of the most breathtaking movie kisses I've ever seen. This is the first work I've seen from this director and I can't wait to dig deeper.
When John dismissively says “aw!” in response to Kate saying she’s been doing theatre in New York, I laughed so long at my iPad that I had to turn it off and come back.
