Ponyboi (2019) BFI Flare and Tribeca 2019
This is a small bittersweet gem of a film about the search for love and a place where we can be who we really are. Anchored by a heartbreaking performance by writer/director River Gallo, PONYBOI is a film that will bring a tear to your eye. It is a film that revolves all around our hero who bleeds a sad strength that moves us. Gallo gives us a performance that makes us do more than just sympathize but feel deeply the aching need to love and bee loved for who we are. Clearly Gallo is putting himself out there and the result is a moving and heartfelt film.
Very real and very raw, PONYBOI is a film at is very recommended when it plays today and the 28th at BFI FLARE and at the end of April at the Tribeca Film Festival.
