    Pedophilia ? Or ageless love?

    This movie basically says nothing. Besides eye candy, there's nothing much to say. What can you say about a 29 year old man having sex with a just-turned 15 year old boy? But to it's credit, the movie doesn't try to justify it. The movie doesn't really have any dialogue. There's a lot of just ''hanging out.'' Nothing edgy, as in the movie L.I.E., and nothing as creative as any Gus Van Sant movie. And the little sign language used in this movie made the deaf boy look dumb and the man look dumber. The man signs ''play'' and ''guitar'' instead of simply signing ''play guitar'' for example. And the deaf boy just does a lot of pointing.

    All Lead-In - No Story

    Normally, with this type of movie, you expect some sort of story and character development, conflict, resolution, and effects. This movie did an excellent job of developing the story and characters, and then ended. At the only sign of conflict, a stern talk from Eban's father, Eban and Charley take the least dramatic way out, roll credits, end of story. ''When the going gets tough - run away!'' There really needs to be a second half to the story.
