    • Synopsis
    • Life in a small town in vast, empty Patagonia is not the most stimulating environment for a teenager, but Argentine director Alexis Dos Santos brings it alive in his first feature film, Glue. This tender, vibrant coming-of-age story touches upon many adolescent topics - experimentation with drugs, familial alienation, homoeroticism, sexual frustration and self-discovery. Fifteen-year-old Lucas (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart) is having a tough time at home: his parents keep splitting up because his father can't be faithful. Still, Lucas seems more concerned about bodily changes - he's constantly inspecting himself for improvements - and getting laid. He spends most of his time with his best friend, Nacho (Nahuel Viale), playing in a band, riding their bikes and obsessing about sex. When they meet Andrea (Ines Efron), the three soon become fast friends. Some of the film's most magical moments feature the trio together; their inane comments, awkward silences, silly laughter and quasi-philosophical musings feel so natural, you'll be transported back to your own youth.
