      Bruce DeMara Toronto Star Finally, a film about teenage sexuality and its inherent fluidity that has something authentic and intelligent to say. Rated: 3.5/4 Mar 28, 2019 Full Review Rick Bentley Tribune News Service Unlike so many coming-of-age films, Behrman shows the intelligent approach of presenting that while one incident may eventually be a major mile marker, it's not always immediately obvious how much impact will be made. Rated: 3/4 Mar 18, 2019 Full Review Adam Graham Detroit News [An] emotionally honest and heartfelt look at figuring out one's path through the difficult journey of adolescence. Rated: B Mar 15, 2019 Full Review Brian T. Carney Washington Blade A timely but timeless coming-of-age story about friendship, betrayal and the power of rumor. Dec 7, 2022 Full Review Josh Parham Next Best Picture The script is filled with smart observations and endearing character work, and it’s supported by strong direction and a very able ensemble. Rated: 8/10 Jun 4, 2022 Full Review Ben Turner The Pink Lens While this is another film that depicts a fairly negative gay experience and returns often to locker-room sequences to keep people watching, the stakes are high enough to make this an entertaining ninety minutes. Rated: 4/5 Sep 1, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steven M Inspiring, heart breaking, and thought provoking. Truly a beautiful coming of age story that explored the intersections of friendship, sexuality, and family. I am so glad that I saw this film, and can only hope that I will see another film some day that moved me as much as this one. May we all hope to have more Franky's in this world. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Nappyheadhiji It ended so badly im mad asf Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/29/24 Full Review isla s I didn't fully pay attention to this film, I feel, as I couldn't help but wonder what I missed. Something happens between two characters which is the pivotal moment in the film but yet I feel like I didn't see it. I thought this was a pretty hum drum, run of the mill type high school/coming of age film, which didn't really appeal to me frankly. It got good average rates on IMDB but it didn't really interest me. I suppose people of high school age may enjoy it more than I did. It did seem reasonably well made but it didn't work for me as such. I wouldn't recommend it, no. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review lee m I enjoyed this comming of age movie and its quite gripping at times where you get a sense of emotion due to the storyline and quite sad story between friends when clearly he's quick to point the finger at his friend than admit himself that he's either gay or bisexual and the plot feels real and I bet many people can relate to aswell Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Wow! What a movie! Beautiful, an emotional rollercoaster. So clever, subtle and nuanced. I loved every moment of it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I really enjoyed this. Great acting, and overall production. Glad it didn’t feel like a lecture, like many movies on this spectrum do. Would definitely recommend. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/11/21 Full Review Read all reviews
