&#x22;I wasn&#x27;t always this confident. Growing up as the awkward gay kid in asmall town in Pennsylvania, you&#x27;re constantly told, &#x27;Don&#x27;t be yourself,don&#x27;t be proud of who you are.&#x27;&#x22; Carson Kressley <br><br>From fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982) to Boyhood (2014), coming&#x96;of-age movies over the last 30 years or so have been richly diversefrom fantasy to reality. Certainly, being oneself was top priority.<br><br>Closet Monster deftly bridges that variety, presenting the tale ofqueer Oscar (Jack Fulton as a boy, Connor Jessup as 18 years old),whose mom abandons him early in life and dad doesn&#x27;t measure up in thesensitive category. This entertaining film is more like a bittersweetindie than a mainstream comedy and one of the best of its kind inyears.<br><br>Along with some appropriate fantasy sequences and a talking hamster(voice of Isabella Rossellini), director/writer Stephen Dunnnonetheless gives us the feeling of reality. Oscar comes slowly to therealization that he&#x27;s gay with a whole bunch of interest and concernour part. Jessup plays Oscar with such low-key humility and humanitythat he makes us want to spend more than ninety minutes with him. Ihope Jessup gets the acting recognition he deserves&#x97;he&#x27;s that good.<br><br>So real seem Oscar&#x27;s challenges, from coming on a murderous sex crimeas a boy to kicking dad into the closet (nice touch) as a young man,that when we bid him goodbye at a living that will foster his artistictalents, we may well feel we have taken mom&#x27;s place, or at least thehamster&#x27;s, in watching him grow up.<br><br>The film is realistic but uncompromising as it allows him to be a boyoutsider but also befriend an attractive girl, confide in a hamster,and confront his dad with a maturity that suits his perceptive,tough-minded persona. It&#x27;s no coincidence that the tree house heoccupies is a refuge from his dad&#x27;s temper and a home for his eccentriccompanions, from the hamster to attractive male friend, Wilder (AliochaSchneider), and therefore a home for his alternative life.<br><br>Even if you are uncertain you would like a gay-centered film, ClosetMonster will make you see that a well, warmly-told story from any youthpv will be more exciting than any other mainstream romance you willhave seen in a long time.

Closet Monster is that rare first feature coming from an auteur withvision, clarity of thought and a voice unique enough to rise above thenoise. Chances are few will see it; its limited appeal, not to mentionlimited release isn&#x27;t likely to turn many heads. Yet for those who seekit, and more importantly, those who stumble on it years in the future,this movie is just enough to maybe fall in love with.<br><br>Even at a young age, Oscar (Jessup) didn&#x27;t exactly have it easy. Hisparents divorced early on in a scene depicted as both turbulent andpetulant. He boards largely with his father (Abrams), in a livingsituation that highly suggests some serious transgressions on themother&#x27;s (Kelly) part. What&#x27;s worse is somewhere amid the memories oftree house building and playing vampire hunter, Oscar vividly remembersthe beating and paralysis of a gay teenager from his school. Yearslater Oscar&#x27;s worst kept secret is hidden from his father by hispresumed interest in his photography model Gemma (Banzhaf) and amacabre fascination with monster makeup. That of course all changes andthreatens to unravel with the arrival of Wilder (Schneider), whose wavyblonde hair and exotic accent appeals to the tortured Oscar.<br><br>Oscar&#x27;s story might as well be an analog to every closeted teen,suffocating under the provincialism of their hometown, longing for anescape to the assumed gay utopias of New York, San Francisco or MiamiBeach. The universality of his story is further hammered home by a hostof tried and true storytelling techniques literalizing his journey.Oscar infers his conscience via his pet guinea pig Buffy (Rossellini)in order to process his complex emotions. Key images and plot pointsare amplified by hyperbole and forays into body horror and intellectualmontage. In many ways Closet Monster invites comparisons to otherfanta-fablest films like Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) andSwiss Army Man (2016) especially when it comes to exploring emotionallysalient themes.<br><br>Yet just like those films, Closet Monster occasionally undermines itsthemes in the service of artistic flourish. Director Stephen Dunnindulges in one too many moments of ponderous slow-motion and euphoricwhimsy with the same film-school pretension that sunk similar filmslike Before I Disappear (2014). Yet when the movie pivots into itsgroove, it really does have a lot to say through Oscar&#x27;s unique,granular life. Connor Jessup does an incredible job balancing a rolethat requires layers of alienation, tension and longing while alsoconveying outward vulnerability and priggishness. While I personallywish his relationship with his father had more complexity andobjectivity than the average emotional abuse clich&#xE9;, the film doesleave things open for reconciliation.<br><br>Closet Monster is certainly not the definitive coming-out movie; I&#x27;mpretty sure The Way He Looks (2014) took that spot away from My OwnPrivate Idaho (1991) quite some time ago. Yet as a evocative drama andmelancholic piece of entertainment, it has the seriousness and capriceto stand on its own merits. And if it gives young kids like Oscar thecourage to be themselves then I say it&#x27;s all worth it.

Yes! It&#x27;s definitely one of your better coming of age stories.<br><br>Oscar is a kid dealing with his parents divorce living with hispossessive father who manliness clashes with Oscars&#x27;s artistic side andthen there is the fact that he&#x27;s allowing his sexually to approach thesurface. He deals with it by having a close relationship with hishamster, Buffy.<br><br>It&#x27;s a clich&#xE9; seen in a lot of movies but done so naturally in this onethat it does not seem like one at all.<br><br>Plus I was surprisingly entertained by the whole movie.<br><br>Wonderful character development. I just like all the supportingcharacter&#x27;s relationship with the main one. <br><br>I cant think of another great or greater example of a teen goingthrough growing pains.<br><br>Take a look.
