Sebastian – When Everybody Knows 1995
När alla vet (original title)
1h 28min | Drama | 3 November 1995 (Norway)
16 year old Sebastian behaves strangely. He stays alone in his room for hours thinking and doesn’t talk to his parents as he used to. He refuses to explain to them what his problem is. The truth is that he slowly discovers that he feels stangely for his best friend Ulf. Soon he is going to accept his true self – that he is gay and that he is also in love with his best friend Ulf.
I was looking for this movie for more then a year. Now (1999) it is available in the original language with English subtitles in the Netherlands.
It is an excellent movie, especially for teenagers, which shows homosexuality as a natural choice or option when you are growing up. This is far closer to the real life then the image you often get from movies or TV. You can easily identify yourself with the 16 year old Sebastian and his friends. This movie will give you a good feeling if you are dealing with your sexual orientation.
