DVD of the Week: ‘Heartbeats’

Open for a split second in San Diego this winter, you now have no excuse not to see this gorgeous and moving story about a young gay man and his best girlfriend, who fall in love with the same beautiful boy.

As I wrote in my review, “You might expect that Heartbeats, a film about such a topic made by a near-juvenile, a 21-year-old gay man, would be shallow, clichéd and even grating. You would be wrong, because the 21-year-old in question is Xavier Dolan, the French Canadian wunderkind whose first movie, I Killed My Mother, was made when Dolan was 19 and won three awards at the Cannes Film Festival. Dolan wrote, directed and stars in Heartbeats, one of the most beautiful and original gay films I’ve seen in years.”
