In the heart of Montevideo, the affable but secretly troubled Leo wraps himself in the comfort of his small rented room, unmotivated to finish his college thesis or find a job, and content with infrequent visits from his girlfriend. After their six-month relationship ends, Leo begins to break out of his shell by cruising the Internet for a new companion, enlisting the aid of a sympathetic therapist along the way. However, it isn't until he has a chance reunion with a classmate that he is forced to consider the true meaning of his reclusive lifestyle, and a future outside the metaphoric safety of his room. Featuring an affecting soundtrack and an equally endearing cast of characters, director Enrique Buchichio's affirming drama is a unique vision of isolation and coming-of-age set against a modern tale of romance and friendship. "An impressive debut by Uruguayan writer Enrique Buchichio, Leo's Room drifts in a laid-back, almost dreamy way toward edgy subjects usually accompanied by hysterical angst...It's a delicately balanced mood piece that could segue from gay to arthouse venues." - Variety "Centering around a sexually confused young man named Leo the film is a sensitive exploration of coming to terms with your sexuality and understanding who you really are." - Entertainment Focus "Leo's Room" is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Spanish with English subtitles.
