Peter McGinn

We really enjoyed this Amazon Original movie. The nearly no-name ensemble acting cast did a credible job bringing their characters to life. I like how the father wasn’t reduced to a violent abusive monster, but rather was given a bit more depth, though still not close to a sympathetic character. The writing was good as far as it went. By that aim mean the plot seemed to rely somewhat on stereotypical views on gay people during the 70s, leading to cliche lines and situations. Mind you, the reason cliches develop is because they are based on common themes or events. There is a reveal looming over the story, but even if you think you see it coming, there is a twist that is rather neat. It is a nice story, a combination of coming of age and touching upon a social issue of the 70s.
