Great film with superb acting. Meaning is not just conveyed through spoken words--body language plays a part and speaks volumes. The scene with the teacher and Elliot, for example, where she tells him his name means "walk with God," the viewer can see her worried expression on her face. The teacher provided the boy with an anchor--the book--that he could fall back on in his solitude and abandonment.

The scene where his mom and her family were at the dinner table, one could see her torture as her sister called out her failures. The viewer can't help but sense that pain because we know how much she loves her son and feels like a failure that her only way out in her mind to remedy the situation is to bring a man into the house regardless of his character.

Elliot's eyes after his boyfriend tells him he wants to date a guy sitting nearby because he didn't like the idea of Elliot's declaring love after three weeks of dating, exposed his emotional grief without an utterance, culminating ultimately in a physical altercation with his boyfriend's new erotic focus--no words and yet so powerful. These are just a few scenes where non-verbal communications are so poignant. The production is loaded with them giving the film a stellar quality.

Great work of art on a limited budget--a must see.

I stumbled on this little surprise on HBO in the day time. Being partially hispanic and having lived in New York, it pulled me in right away. I saw so much of myself and life in Elliott. Fabio Costaprado and the little boy that played him, were both enchanting. The young man who plays as Elliot is such a natural. He had me laughing, smiling and crying. Some parents have little clue how deep our emotions can be at a very tender age. Señor Costraprado was born to play Elliot. It was a serendipitous casting. The cast of characters coming in and out of Elliot's life are not caricatures. You can find any number of these characters in Jackson Heights or Corona or Queens Village or what is now left of Spanish Harlem. The inside jokes between Dominicans and Puerto Ricans is a very real situation between the two cultures. As much as I was aware of the ongoing riffs between the two island cultures, no one has been able to truly articulate just why this ongoing rivalry seems without ending.

And the Latin men were beyond wonderful! From the extraordinarily adorable young Elliot to Mr. Costraprado and his many corazon tugs provide endless eye candy and salutes the elated libertidad of New York summers when certain parts of the city transport you to Recife or Acension or Puerto Plata. The charming and beautiful Bonita that plays Elliot's mother is another perfect bit of casting. With a beautiful, familiar kind of face, she needs her friendship with Elliot possibly more than Elliot needs her maternal nurturing. The revolving doors of pendejos only reinforces the bond between mother and son, son and needing guidance to grow.

I identified with Elliot. In my youth, I would always be hoping "he is the one", only to end up disappointed or simply looking foolish.

It was a little too sobering to see how Elliot would eventually mirror his mother's poor choices in lovers and/or potential partners.

This Flix is a bit on the silly side but it works. Looking for love in all the wrong places is an often recycled storyline but the flim has enough add personality that it's still fun. As a gay love story it of course attempts to pull in the tender as well and it works. I found myself pulling for and identifying with Elliot as he seeks to Love.

A small Masterpiece: the acting was devastatingly real ,esp both "Elliots" and his mother; powerful performances,hilarious and heartbreaking and in the end, salvific.Elliot, "He who walks with God" truly understands the heart of God,by his continual decision to choose love over hatred or worse,indifference.

This about Elliot, when he was a child, and when he is in his twenties, so it's a story of a mother who needs a man, that had sex, with a man that her mother didn't want, and had a baby, and as Elliott goes from one man to another, until he finds mister right

This movie is a good one; well done and in good taste; Elliot is a cutie which helps; a real life type of drama and some romance; would recommend it to anyone who likes gay movies.
