Love is at the center of Phil’s world, and it’s really screwing things up for him. Whether it’s love for his slightly loony mother Glass and his fraternal twin Diane (who suddenly aren’t speaking), love for his gorgeous new boyfriend Nicholas (who may not love him back), or love for his best friend Kat (who may have eyes for Nicholas), love is making a royal mess of everything. With such adorably dysfunctional and odd people around him to set highly questionable examples, what is a gentle and trusting young soul like Phil supposed to do when all hell breaks loose? CENTER OF MY WORLD skips gleefully from past to present, bringing Phil up to this point in his off-kilter fairytale life. It’s a bright, colorful whirl of images that reveals both fantastic patterns and a deeply human story. Joyful, funny, and sometimes sad, this film is for everyone who has ever looked for love, who has found it, or who can’t figure out exactly what to do with it. (In German with subtitles) —C.R.
