Tender, romantic and utterly engrossing, Watercolors charts the life-changing gay love affair between two young students. Upon arriving at his debut exhibition in New York, promising artist Danny is immedi¬ately transported back to a summer of years gone by where he met Carter, a strikingly handsome swimmer. An initial attraction soon develops into an intense and passionate affair between the contrasting students - and Carter ultimately becomes the inspiration for much of Danny's highly charged erotic work. But their relationship, and even Carter's very existence, is at risk as he battles an abusive father, endemic homophobia and drug abuse.
Beautiful and upsetting masterpiece
- Watercolors review by TB
This is a beautiful and very sad coming of age film with the two lead actors putting in believable and emotional performances that really strike at your heartstrings. A real masterpiece of a film that left me in tears.
