Triptych story of a young black homosexual – from childhood to adulthood – as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.
Beautiful, gripping, penetrating drama with an almost electric delicacy. It presents such a wide viewpoint of empathy that is rarely seen on screen, despite its affected air of broken-hearted yearning. The performances are uniformly remarkable.
