Big Boys

Coming out of age is never easy, but sometimes it gets painfully complicated. For example, when Jamie’s beloved older cousin Allie brings her new boyfriend Dan on a holiday trip they all spend together. Fourteen-year-old isn’t delighted, but soon it turns out that twelve-years-older Dan impresses him with his skills. A special male bond develops between them, and for the teenage boy, it means more than he’s ready to admit to himself. Raised with the belief that homophobic masculinity based on physical power is right and essential for survival, he overcomes his complexes by reproducing toxic schemes. But deep down, he starts to recognize his true self – and Dan’s grown-up attitude is an important part of this process.

Director Corey Sherman puts autobiographical reflection in “Big Boys”, pointing out that body shaming and complexes about body shape aren’t only women’s, but also men’s issue, regardless the age.
