Leo's Room (El cuarto de Leo)

Uruguay 2009

Details IMDB

Seen 18 April 2014

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 6.7/10

Leo, a young man coming to terms with his own sexuality, runs into Caro, a primary school friend he fancied when they were kids, who's now trying to ward off her own personal demons

My ratings 7.0/10

My impressions:

A languid pace gives the story time to grow and sink into our consciousness while the subject of same sex attraction is handled gently and with much compassion.

The dilemma faced by the main character might ring true for some in a similar situation. More questions seem to appear as the story continues and answers are not any nearer. Decisions had to be made which leads to further complications.

Whatever the consequences, a choice has to be made in order for some hope of happiness to occur.
