Damian Joseph Quinn,
Marcos, a seventeen-year-old farm worker, discovers his sexuality in a hostile environment. Nicknamed Marilyn by other teenagers in town, he becomes the target both of human desire and discrimination. Marcos feels himself pushed into a corner more and more.
I've never seen something with the pace of this film. It builds slowly and quietly, punctuated close to the beginning with one shocking & horrible moment that the main character Marcos keeps to himself. The whole time, you get very little verbally from Marcos, but you see his face as he processes the things that happen to him and as he receives no sympathy from those around him, and the effect is that you feel for his journey deeply. This film is quiet, mirroring the silent disdain and disinterest that Marcos receives, until an ending that left me wide eyed, jaw-dropped, and with chills all up my body. I never expected the ending but when I saw it happen I quickly remembered all the elements of the story that point to an ending like this making perfect sense.
