I remember watching this movie and being really impressed by the characters. Or the writing of them. Each of our main characters really gets a voice and has a story to tell. Even the ones that aren't present get the chance. I feel like, in a lot of gay movies out there, there's a really strong focus on only the two gay characters, which is fine, but I guess this was refreshing in a way. I really liked the way the story reveals itself to our characters. It has really smooth transitions as well. I don't know. I found the story really touching. Each character is dynamic with their own struggles and their unique way of expressing themselves. I really liked it. Ah sorry if this isn't very helpful, but I thought it should be known it was a story worth watching.

All around excellent. Excellent writing, tight directing and editing, immaculate acting. Painful as fuck and a little difficult to bear but not numbingly so, it gives a really honest look on the micro level at humanity and societal pressure and the chain of hurt that comes from homophobia without seeming to really be about homophobia. I don't think I'll ever watch it again because my emotional fortitude is low, but I am glad I watched it once.
The way I know the storytelling was excellent is that I never thought about it while I was watching, but realized it wouldn't have been able to care as much if it was delivered differently.
I think all three main characters did amazing jobs. I hurt when they hurt; I hated them when they hated themselves; I loved them when they tried to heal.
