This was made the same year as Velvet Goldmine and in some ways it's much better! - a tougher, more direct and affecting story of gay love, in which an impressionable teen falls under the sway of swaggering glammer Fogi. If you ever crushed on a musician or followed a band, or had a relationship that pushed too fast and too far, this film will strike a resonant chord.
