When I started watching this film I almost turned it off - I thought I was in for 90 minutes of High School 'Dude' talk and not much else. But after the first 30 mnutes or so it suddenly got good.
There are no big stars in this film, and it could certainly have been made a whole lot better by better script writing and a bit less cheesey background music that played throughout.
But the story is a simple dilemma of to do the right thing, or not. In its own way, the film dealt with coming out in an incredibly homophobic environment, it dealt with accepting feelings and growing up.
Towards the end of the film I was surprised to find I had tears in my eyes, and the final scene of the film was unexpectedly moving, even though it was not based on the central point of the story.
The two main stars played their parts well, and Denita, the friend John makes during his troubles was wonderful - completely understated, but conveying so much about friendship.
All in all, if you have this film and have not made it to the end - give it another go - it is well worth it!
