    Powerful film. Also a great novel. I read this when I was fourteen, and I kid you not, it changed my perspective on how I looked at things that happened in life. Very touching and also very sad, but I feel that there is a depth of realism to both the book and the movie that most films/novels lack.

    this movie has a great message, many researches has shown that people (men) who had experienced sexual abuse with other men when the were children (like in the movie) are more prone to become Homosexual (gay).

    This was the most messed up movie I've ever seen, but its power made it really good at the same time. Some scenes were very hard for me to watch and understandably so if you choose to watch it yourself.

    wow i saw the trailer for this movie when i was little (good thing i didn't watch it then), but it was weird realizing i remembered some scenes while i was watching it a couple days ago. this movie is beautiful, but in a kinda fucked up way. it feels kind of nostalgic or something, like i had dreamed of this movie before. its so bizarre. i love this movie but at the same time i fucking hate it
