Oh, Netflix... I get that human sexuality doesn’t wait until you’re at the age of consent to blossom but the film is literally about a man whose growth is so stunted that he makes his first true connection with a child. There is no nuance in their ‘relationship’ and Mubi won’t allow me enough characters to go into what I found so deeply wrong and, to be fair, what works.
