You’ll get over it – A cause d’un garcon

France 2004

Details  imdb

Seen 21 August 2008

The school relay team swimmer, popular among the girls finds his life topsy-turvy when graffiti on the school wall states that he is gay. In this case, he had just slept with a girl he feels close to but not really in love with. The love act was the girl’s first experience with a boy. Added to this volatile mix is the unwavering loyalty of his close male friend, the parents’ handling of the truth, and his place in the swimming team as well as his burgeoning feelings towards a fellow male student.

An even handed look at the issues surrounding a teenager’s sexual identity and how he and those around him come to terms with the events.

Not a great movie, but insightful in some instances.
