    Director Bolton could easily have exploited the film's unsettling issues, but he takes a nonsensationalized approach that leaves viewers to decide the moral questions for themselves.

    Sometimes spare to a fault (especially scriptwise), low-key effort nonetheless holds attention with its naturalistic, nonsensationalized approach.
  3. 50
    One of the film's most poignant moments comes when he and his father discuss his compulsive attraction to young boys.
  4. It's always admirable when a director decides to make a risky film. On the other hand, it's not quite as commendable to also make a boring one.
  5. 30
    Earnest but unenlightening drama.
  6. 30
    Drab and muddled romance.
  7. May be the most boring film about forbidden love ever made. Unspectacularly shot on video, terribly scripted, with zombie-like acting that borders on the absurd.
