Block Pass (2024) Cannes 2024

Willie and Jojo  are life long friends who are never far apart. When Willie discovers Jojo's secret their lives are forever changed.

That is not a good description of the plot, but it's either the official one or one that wrecks the entire story. 

This is a good but unremarkable drama. It's an extremely well made film with great performances but it doesn't have a great script. It's not bad, rather nothing remarkable happens. We can kind of guess what the secret it is and then once that puts things in play it doesn't do anything interesting. I was looking for some grand revelation that never came.

Perhaps had this not come with the baggage of premiering at Cannes I might have been more forgiving.

Not bad but nothing special
