Run Time: 92 minutes
Leo is a student whose wide eyes and curly hair project sensitive boyishness. He is vaguely aware that there's something wrong with his relationship with beautiful Andrea. What's worse, Leo's mom is pressuring them to get married. Uncomfortable with Andrea's requests for sex, Leo pretends he has to study. He goes to hide in the apartment he shares with a pothead who spends his days watching "Star Wars." Away from everyone's prying eyes, Leo searches online for friends. Timid and awkward at first, he invites one or two men to his room, only to have them leave when he says he just wants to talk. Then Leo stumbles into old girlfriend Caro, who has become listless and chronically depressed. As they grow closer, he finds that she, too, has a repressed secret. Leo's visits to an understanding therapist, plus his new love for a candid man named Seba, help him begin to answer his questions about himself. LEO'S ROOM explores the moments of unexpected connection that can lead to confession and acceptance. Love, loss, grief, guilt, desires, and fear are all more easily managed if we have the courage to face them. (In Spanish with subtitles) – B.B.
