    While Cazeneuve's story is about gay love, it also charts universal truths about adolescent romance and high school politics with great aplomb.
  2. 70
    Screenwriter Vincent Molina and director Fabrice Cazaneuve are wonderfully calm about the tumult of teen life.
  3. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    Non-formulaic character interactions, a uniformly strong cast and deft handling by vet TV helmer Fabrice Cazaneuve render a refreshing take on youthful coming-out.
  4. 60
    Screenwriter Vincent Molina takes into account changing attitudes towards homosexuality and the resulting film never feels like the kind of thing we've seen time and again in the '80s and '90s.
  5. The story's celebration of honesty is commendable, even if the treatment of homophobia is no deeper than the hero's swimming pool.
  6. 40
    Too breezily, You’ll Get Over It gets over it--the dewy, abrupt optimism of its ending seems wholly unearned.
  7. 25
    What's Vincent to do? Will he come out of the closet? Will he lead the swim team to victory at the big match? Will he find happiness with Noemie? Does anybody care?
