With the passing of Section 377 and annual Gay Prides all across the world, most of us have surely come to accepting our individuality and sexual preferences happily. However, there are still people like Alex Truelove who find it hard to first find out and then to admit in publically, which is why you definitely need to watch the romcom Alex Strangelove on Netflix tonight.
Starring Daniel Doheny, Madeline Weinstein, and Antonio Marziale, Alex Strangelove is a sweet movie about a high school guy who keeps trying way too hard to lose his virginity with his girlfriend Claire, but ends up falling in love with the most unexpected person. Now, while this may sound like a cliché, it is now. The love story is unlike others. Alex falls for Elliot, a guy almost his age and finds is too difficult to accept it. After all, we have no criteria for self-evaluation for our sexual preferences at such a young age as such, do we?
The storyline might seem predictable because honestly it is. However, the turns in the plot and the actors successfully come aboard to save it from drowning even a little bit. At one point, you’d call Alex a fool and at another, you would empathize with him for sure. Not to forget, with Claire too. If I were to rate this movie, I’d rate it a 3.5 out of 5. Not too bad, is it?
Well, it’s time to let go of my review, watch the movie, and share your opinion with me. And just in case you already have, what are you waiting for? Leave a comment below and we can surely catch up on how we feel about this Netflix teenage movie.
