Edge of Seventeen
See more » Gay Themed
Just watched Edge of Seventeen. I think it was the first coming out movie Iíve seen since I started watching gay movies with Charles. I still felt like Iíd seen many. Likely because Iíve read it so many times in novels and books. And it used to be one of the first stories two young gay men would share.
I thought Ericís story was well and warmly told; couldnít help sympathizing and caring for him. And Iíll admit to being weakened by how he looked in his New Romantic drag (always had a weakness for boys in make-up). It was nice that all the clichťs used, say, in Justinís (QAF) story: angry father, getting beaten up were skipped. Those things happened to too many people but they donít need to be in every coming out story.
