    A Delightful Love Story

    I saw this movie and I must say, it is a delightful love story. The tale of finding your sexuality at any age helps many people open their eyes with the help of The Gymnast's colorful cast and a superb script. The movie is brilliantly directed and is very realisic to modern day love stories and helps the viewers understand what happens when a person realizes they might not be staright after all and how it begins to affect those around them. This movie is a great treat for both gays and straights and is highly recommended.

    interesting character study

    I don't know who doesn't read the info for a movie before watching it but I enjoyed this film. The visual performances of the aerial gymnastics were really beautiful. A lovely story.

    OH MY GOD

    Not a movie for children, despite the name. I saw it and thought "Oh yay, a gymnastics movie for my 9 yr old daughter". UGH, good God no!!!!! This is a gay/lesbian movie, not really anything to do with gymnastics.
