Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho  
So, two years ago I recced a short film on Youtube. Now this little gem has been turned into a full length movie.

The Way He Looks (2014)

Leonardo is a blind teenager dealing with an overprotective mother while trying to live a more independent life. To the disappointment of his best friend, Giovana, he plans to go on an exchange program abroad. When Gabriel, a new student in town, arrives at their classroom, new feelings blossom in Leonardo making him question his plans.

I love it so much. ♥ It is charming, loving, funny and feels very real. It's a bit of a classic coming of age story, the main character just happens to be blind. And gay. :) One of my favourite movies from last year.

I would recommend anyone to buy the DVD, because there need to be more films like this, but if you can't/it's not available in your country, you can stream it online here and just fall a little in love with Leo and Gabriel.

I love these movies. The short one was just so sweet and cute and I loved what they did with the feature film. :)

They are wonderful. ♥
I love that they never overdid the triangle thing and that Giovanna is more than the third wheel. And the boys are just adorable.

I've seen parts of this movie on Netflix and, even though I haven't had time to really watch the whole thing yet, the parts I've seen have absolutely made me smile.

Oh, unfair, in Germany it's not on Netflix. *just checked*
You should take the time to watch the whole thing, it's worth it! ;)

I definitely plan on watching it as soon as I can. It's at the top of my list after I watch some movies nominated for Oscars this year.
