My favorite rom-com genre is the ‘two ships passing in the night’ one: wherein two souls briefly meet,.and for one reason or another have to separate, even though the connection between yhem is deep. Think ‘Before Sunrise.’ Think ‘Weekend,’ for the gay version. I am sure Daniel Sanchez Lopez had both films in mind when he did ‘Boy Meets Boy,’ which is the gay version for the Gen Y set.
But I just didn’t connect – is it because these kids are too young for me to relate to? Is it because of the really shallow screenplay? I never believed that these two guys had something between them, and didn’t care if they ended up together or not. Nothing wistful on my end.
Maybe it’s me, then.
