Funny, touching and sexy, Leo's Room follows a young man's unusually sensitive and compelling journey of self-discovery. Doe-eyed grad student Leo (Martin Rodriguez) is, if anything, indecisive. After getting dumped by his girlfriend for avoiding sex, he faces the daunting task of coming to terms with his true suppressed nature. On the one side, he tentatively cruises the Internet for gay sex, and on the other, he seeks advice from his surprisingly supportive mother and a sympathetic therapist. But it's a chance encounter with an old friend that leads him to open his heart to his true desires. Infused with memorable characters (including his hilarious pothead coach-potato roommate) and offering a witty twist on the coming out dilemma, Leo's Room is both a charming romantic comedy as well as a look into one person's search for truth.
Saw this film on Friday, it was good - Enrique Buchichio’s sensitive and sexy tale, of Leo’s (Martin Rodriguez) compelling journey. As Leo comes to terms with his repressed nature, you can’t help but fall in love with this doe - eyed Leo with his round face and slightly up turned nose. In Spanish with English Subtitles, a compelling romantic comedy, with a twist on the coming out routine, this is a charming tale. Cecilia Cósero, an old friend is one of the memorable characters making up this beautiful story.
