Beach Rats

It has to be hard to do something unique in this genre and I think this film hit the mark.    There isn’t a ton of dialog and there aren’t any make-or-break moments.  The viewer gets an interesting glimpse into the struggles of someone who is trying to find himself and (probably) wishing he was something other than what he was.  I can’t imagine having to go through that kind of struggle.  The last scene is perfect.
