Product description

Product Description

In the spirit of other successful high school coming out tales such as Edge of Seventeen, Dare and Get Real, Because of a Boy is an important entry into the New Queer Cinema canon.

Vincent is an average high school boy, a good student, and a star swimmer. Life literally goes by swimmingly, that is until handsome new kid Benjamin (Jérémie Elkaïm, Presque Rien) arrives at the school, kicking up some serious inner turmoil. You see, Vincent is beginning to come to terms with his sexuality, yet he is terrified of upsetting feisty girlfriend Noémie and his conservative family. With passions riding high, Vincent s idyllic life begins to crumble, culminating in the school messageboard being covered in graffiti labeling him a "fag". Slowly but surely, Vincent adapts to life as a young gay man, and finds that it isn't such a terrifying thing after all.
