Description Shy and withdrawn, Nathan (played by Stephan Bender) is new to his school, unusually smart (a grade ahead) and the silent tension at home nearly unbearable. Mom, Dad, and Nathan have moved constantly, town after town, landing, inexplicably, in god-fearing "St. Francesville". Roy (played by the multi-talented Max Roeg), a year older than Nathan, confident and hard-working, drives the bus to their school while a friendship blooms between them into a relationship that is fraught with confusion and yearning. But secrets pick at the relationship, the unspoken rules of their angst-driven interactions unravel as Nathan's world again comes crashing inwards. Tension crescendos as shame and terror, stress and disaster all compete to immobilize and destroy both of their worlds.

    This movie makes me sad everytime I remember it, it's been 2 years now since I first watch this movie and its still makes me sad. This movie is great but they could've just let nathan and roy run together and live happily ever after like what is written on the book, killing nathan at the end is just so wrong and so depressing.

    I just watched this movie and it was so bad. Please don't even watch it. They throw in these serious issues to try to activate your feels but it's done so poorly. No romance whatsoever. It's just a lot of sex (not all of which is consensual). No relationship development for Roy and Nathan. I was thoroughly disappointed and pissed off.
  • Tommy 2015-07-12 22:24:57
    It shuts my heart constantly. It's amazing.
