Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for language and brief nudity
This film is as beautiful as the true-life story upon which it is based. Ewing coaxes subtle performances from the actors that traverse the story’s timeline, including the real subjects whose story Ewing beautifully retells – a verite touch that harkens back to the Director’s documentarian roots.
While it’s a story of queer love (and one that’s a welcome addition to cinema), it is more a testament to the indefatigable power of love, no matter the incredible obstacles confronting it.
Perhaps most of all, it provides an intimate portrait of the personal sacrifices immigrants make every day to realize the American Dream – a dream that the film notes can take years or a lifetime to arrive, if ever. If this doesn’t cause you to empathize with those who represent the best of America, then your soul is barren.
