I remember seeing this in the theater and I remember being charmed as hell by it. As I recall, the very ending had the whole audience saying "awww" and then bursting out in laughter.

I saw this as a teenager freshly thrown out of my house for being gay and remember thinking ok, this is going to be ok. I don’t remember much of the film but I do remember the bedroom full of light and happiness.

This movie was so adorable!! It helped me, a teen bi/pan girl, believe that things were going to be okay.
