30 Days of Queer Cinema - Day 5 | The Way He Looks
Giovana and blind teenager Leo are the best of friends and constant companions. But when handsome stranger Gabriel moves to town, his presence threatens to come between them, as Leo finds himself more and more romantically drawn to Gabriel in ways he never thought possible. A tender and beautiful coming of age tale that perfectly captures teenage romantic angst and sexual awakening in a very real and honest way. Sensual without feeling exploitative, The Way He Looks is a wonderful film, a truly touching love story that captures growing up in all of its messy, awkward, sometimes painful beauty.
