Movie Review: “Loving Vincent”

Loving Vincent poster – courtesy of Culto- La Tercera.

“WE CANNOT SPEAK OTHER THAN BY OUR PAINTINGS” — Vincent van Gogh. That is what Vincent Van Gogh said in his last letter to his brother Theo. And precisely through a recreation of his work and the last 800 letters that the painter wrote is how we are going to get to know him, his life and also his mysterious death. This is the first feature film made by animated paintings; Loving Vincent is a film that celebrates the great work of one of the greatest painters of the Post-Impressionist.

Dorota Kobiela was the co-writer and co-director alongside with her husband Hugh Welchman who also worked as co-producer for “Breakthru Films”. I will leave a link to the official site of the movie so you can see the rest of the wonderful creators who helped made this motion picture, because I could write for years trying to thank them for the mind blowing movie experience they gave me.

To see “Loving Vincent” is to be a part of film history, every frame of the movie is an oil painting, you have never seen a movie like this, to see how every stroke of the brush move on the face of the protagonist is amazing, the detail that all of the artist have put to every character and also to maintain Van Gogh style has been achieved to perfection.

(SPOILER ALERT) Even though I feel that if you are admirers of Vincent Van Gogh and his work, then you may know the story.

The film operates under the assumption and belief that Vincent didn’t commit suicide, the mailman Joseph Roulin (Chris O’Dowd) who used send Van Gogh’s letters to his brother Theo, decides to send his son to deliver the famous painter his last letter to Theo. The problem is that Theo passed away a few months later than his older brother.

Armand Roulin the son of the mailman (Douglas Booth) feels obliged to see what really happened, and starts the work of an investigator that makes us truly believe that everyone is guilty, but the movie makes a remarkable job to show us the points of view of every character in Van Gogh’s life.

Vincent Painting In The Rain – Cortesy of the artists of Loving Vincent

It is really interesting how they recreated Vincent funerals; it gave them so much veracity and a feeling to a story that already has so many feelings that any other movie featuring actual non animated humans, whose cheeks don’t shine with that beautiful rose color oil.

The separation of events was done very artfully, when it was a memory it was painted in black and white, but if the moments were in the present everything was filled with bright colors which Vincent adored.

It was beautiful and melancholic to see Theo Van Gogh crying on the coffin of his brother, it was a completely evocative image, and later to see how his death caused a void, that ended up in his own death (of course he had his own illness prior to Vincent’s death)

I appreciate so much that when the writers made you feel secure that “X” person was guilty of the death of Vincent, later we were treat to the motives as to why they would never commit such a terrible act. And I was just as disillusioned as Armand when he came to the conclusion that our beloved Vincent really did shot himself.

Vincent’s story was a sad one, but within his sadness and loneliness he had the best version of the world, transforming his sadness into the most attractive colors, creating works of art that are considered the best of its time (the best works of history in my humble opinion)

Every time I see or read something about his history, I always expect a different ending, I hope that someone tells me that “the crazy man who committed suicide” was just a myth that never cut his ear, and actually lived until he was a very old man with his great love, because he deserved that story, and those damn humans around him who could never give him, but I must have the self-criticism to admit that if there is an actual “mad genius” I have no idea where he or she is, and how to help them, because the world has become much more cynical since Vincent’s death.

But I also have to ask myself that if that sadness and possible mental illness, were necessary to create the work that he left us, and if he had had that beautiful life I so wish to read, could he have painted all those breathtaking paintings that I love so much?

Would “Starry Night” exist or “Old Man in Sorrow” (which by the way I almost jump out of my chair when I saw that painting come to life in “Loving Vincent”, the animations really deserved another praise, (like winging Best Animated Feature Film for example)

I think it’s safe to say by now that I adored this film, because they did justice to my favorite painter in an unimaginable way, by making film history. I want to thank them for doing something so marvelous.




Movie Review: “Paper Towns”

Disclaimer this review was posted years ago on my blogger account, once again I am going to write all my english review on this blog, so I am using old posts as my trying out period.

Paper Towns is the third book of the writer and nerdfighter John Green, the same guy who wrote the successful book “The Fault in Our Stars” that was made into a really fruitful movie starring Shailene  Woodly and Ansel Elgort. The movie broke box office records in its opening weekend. The movie also broke records in youtube, by being the most watched trailer in the history of the site.

Before I go on any further I would love to thank LifeCinemas and Me gusta leer Uruguay, for giving me the opportunity to assist to the Avant Premiere of the movie.

In Paper Towns we meet Quentin Jacobsen, ‘Q’ for those who know him better, who as a little kid was innocently playing with a ball, until he saw a car that stopped in front of his house. From set car gets out a beautiful little girl named Margo Roth Spiegelman, she appears to be his age, from that moment on Q found that he was completely in love with Margo Roth Spiegelman.

Soon they became friends, they made trips on their bicycles all the time, until one day when they discovered a dead man’s body, while Q doesn’t want to get into troubles, and he was also terribly scared about the whole situation, Margo was intrigued by what they had discover. They went back to their houses and told their parents about it. But Margo had to uncover the truth, so she came to Q’s window to ask for his help to solve the mystery. But Q couldn’t help her, because he was sure he shouldn’t get into problems, so Margo went alone.

Nine yars go by and they have drifted apart, and when their senior year came they were completely strangers, but that didn’t stop Qs love for her, because according to him everyone gets a miracle, and his miracle was Margo Roth Spiegelman.

This one night Margo appeared in his window, and told him she needed his help to do nine things that were part of her big revenge, where she would leave her marc, a big M on the walls of her subjects. Q after some doubts agrees to go with her in this crazy journey she proposes.

Days after their big night together she disappears, and Q takes it upon himself to find her, using clues she left behind, as she used to do every time she ran away.
When he discovers that Margo is in a ‘paper town’ (a city that map creators would put in their maps for copyright reasons, if they saw that town on another map they knew they were copied). Q decides to go after her, soon that wish turns into an epic road trip that would take them to Agloe, New York, along with his best friends, Ben and Radar, Angela (Radar’s girlfriend) a character that didn’t had as much importance in the book, and having her on the trip  was really nice, since Angela is friendly and fun. Lacey (Margo’s best friend) also decides she has to join them, this brings much happiness to young Ben, who is dying to ask her to prom.

Last Tuesday not only did I go to see a movie, that Tuesday I went to a paper town, and as the saying goes “you’ll go to the paper towns, and you will never come back” a part of me came back, but there’s this other part that stayed there, in that theatre where I lived so many emotions, so much happiness that they gave me by turning my favorite book into an awesome movie

Although the movie’s main target is the teen audience, it can be enjoyed by people of all ages, because the lessons it gives you can be and should be learned at any age.

There’s this error that many of us make, by putting a person in a pedestal, because to us that person can do no wrong, since to us they’re “Inarguably the most gorgeous creature that god had ever created”.

We fail when we can’t imagine the other person complexly, when we attribute them qualities that they don’t have, when we made them out to be these god like creatures that they can’t be.

That’s what the movie is about, seeing beyond our impressions of them, be it our friends, or family or our love interests.

Nat Wolff is the perfect Quentin, since he not only acts with his mouth by saying the lines, his entire body is acting in each scene. He has such expressive eyes, that make you understand wonderfully what Q is feeling in each moment, combined with the way he shrugged his shoulders every time something felt awkward to Quentin, and the confidence and security in which he presents himself when he knows he has to do something and he has no fear of doing so. Margo says it best in the book and in the movie, he really is so much cuter when he’s more confident of himself, and let’s go of his fear of breaking the rules.

Cara Delevinge is Margo, many people were not happy with this particular casting, but after seeing the movie, I can honestly say that Delevinge understood Margo very well, when she did things like the revenges, she seem to understand the motives behind those actions, she made them her own, and suddenly in the screen we didn’t see Cara Delevingne the super model or the Victoria Secret’s angel, in each of Margo’s actions the girl that walks the catwalk with such confidence in herself was lost, and we could see a girl that is lost and that isn’t as great as they all made her out to be, someone who has flaws and knows she has to better herself, to get to know herself, maybe that’s why she moves away from everything, maybe that’s why this paper girl goes to a paper town.

The funniest character is without a doubt Ben Starling (played wonderfully by Austin Abrams), from his insistent attraction for Q’s mother and the inappropriate comments that go alone with that, to the sad story that gives them the unlucky nickname “Bloody Ben” which reduces his chances of getting a date to prom. His crazy antics as a teenager armed with a sword made out of beer bottles that seems to be stuck to his hand. His unapologetic way of acting is beautiful. The song he chooses when his friends are afraid to go through the ‘troll hole’ is just perfect. And also being the person that saves the group from crashing into the great wall of cow.

A great Ben moment, in my opinion was when Ben really needed to pee, and Lacey handed him a can and while he started to do so he comes close to Radar making weird sounds of relieve and satisfaction while repeating Radar’s name over and over again.

Seeing the millions of black Santa Clauses was everything I imagined when reading the book, they made me want to own one, to remember Radar and his family by, people capable of going to the point of madness to follow an ideal, is what make them so awesome to me.

Marcus ‘Radar’ Lincoln (Justice Smith was great in his interpretation of this character) he’s a great character, the middleman between his two best friend, “You know what is your problem Quentin? You keep expecting people to not be themselves” says Radar when Q gets sick of Ben’s way of behaving.

I also enjoyed very much that they didn’t mention Radar’s obsession for updating the website Omnictionary which was mention but subtly.

Lacey Pemberton, a great friend willing to travel thousands of miles just to see if her friend is okay, and Angela, a great girlfriend to Radar who supports him in everything, because she wants to be a part of his world, despite of it being surrounded by thousands of black Santa Clauses.

Lacey was played by Halston Sage who gave a lot of tenderness to Lacey achieving to captivate the audience not only with her beauty but also with her feelings and thoughts, Angela was played by Jaz Sinclair, who showed perfectly what a wonderful and easygoing girlfriend Angela could be, especially when her boyfriend confesses to her that his parents are trying to have the world’s biggest collection of black Santa Clauses, plus she’s able to bring down his nerves and stress that overcomes Radar from time to time.

They were a great addition to the road trip, it was necessary to have counterbalance to the crazy things the boys did, although they were open to those crazy things.

In its essence this is a great movie that managed to capture the feeling of the book, the joy of friendship, the reality that we may never get to know ourselves, let alone know our friends, family or romantic partners.

Paper Towns isn’t a fairytale, these characters didn’t go through extraordinary things, small moments were lived, that in my opinion were amazing, because that’s what real life is like, appreciate a good chat with a friend while having a cup of coffee and you talk about each other’s  problems and fears of the future, talk to that beautiful girl that you fancy and getting to know her, going to the movies with your friends and laughing your ass off because the movie is so stupid but feels you up with a lot of joy, or just playing with your dog or cat.

Those tiny things can be fabulous, and it was so great to see something in the cinema that can actually happen to me in real life. As a nerdfighter and someone who is incredibly in love with the book, I must say that the movie exceeded my expectations.

Paper Towns is real, sweet at times, funny in its majority, it also makes you think something very important, do I have a ‘Margo’? Or am I someone’s ‘Margo’? But most importantly, how the hell do you get so many black Santa Clauses?

FEED the movie


Disclaimer: This review was posted to my blogger account, but since I am trying to branch out and do more reviews in english I thought this movie would be a great test. Thank you for reading this… please go on to the review.
The poster is just fantastic, shows any head of an important studio that you don’t need great amounts of money to make amazing art.
I saw this amazing movie and I wanted to tell you guys about it, but firt the synopsis.
(trataré de hacer la reseña en español)


Olivia (Bellisario) and Matthew Grey (Felton) are 18 year-old twins born into a world of privilege and high expectations. There are almost no boundaries between them – even their dreams are connected. Their futures shine bright with Olivia set to be the class valedictorian and Matt the class president. As the twins prepare for their last school year together, an unexpected tragedy splits them apart, leaving the surviving one to learn how to live without their other half – or test how far they are willing to go to bring them back.

My Review: 

SPOILERS AHEAD (I have a lot to say about the movie)
The movie script was written by Troian Bellisario who also plays Liv, Bellisario is an eating disorder survivor, so even though it’s not her story, parts of it are in the film.
Liv appear to me to be the inocent side of the twins, her room was pink, had stuffed animals and she would still call her dad “daddy” even at the age of 18. It is clear at the beginning of the movie that she is slowly loosing control, she has the highest grades of her school, but she doesn’t want to make a big deal about it, I felt like she was always afraid that the rug would be pulled out from under her, when it came to her grades because she work so hard always.
Matt however was another story, he mantained good grades, was senior class president, but still had time to party, a fact that never bothered their father who was a little sexist when it came to the twins. Liv would only go out if it was with Matt, I think it was in part because of their father’s orders and because she didn’t felt safe without her twin, which is more than understandable, as the movie says “when you come into your life with someone everything you see is with that person by your side…”
At a party thrown by Julian one of their friends, she has a little too much to drink something out of character for her, and when they drive back to their parents home, they suffer an accident and Matt dies, leaving her twin alone, when they promise each other that they would die at the same time.
Liv couldn’t live without him, so at first she had a dream about her brother and eventually she started to see him in her awaken moments.
What Troian Bellisario did by creating Matt (played by Tom Felton) was creating a visual metaphor of the voice that negative voice that tells patients who restrict food or who have any mental illness.
When Julian invites her to a Halloween party, her father doesn’t let her go at first, telling her “this isn’t you” but later she goes, and her costume choice also reveals her inocent side stepping into her brother’s former world as she chooses to be Little Red Riding Hood.
Matt becomes her conscience on top of her negative voice, so negative to the fact that she sees him in all dark clothing. I talk about he being her conscience because from time to time he would tell her “I’m starving” which was a reminder (at least in my opinion) that she was trying to say to herself “You are starving, please eat” even using her dark voice, her dark side. But at first she thought she had to feed him, but later she comes to term that her negative voice wasn’t really her brother, it was another side of herself the less inocent side.
But still she uses her negative voice to say what she doesn’t want to say for example when Matt says to her “You are going to daddy’s school”that was clearly her. Trying to rebel against the rules their father had set out for them, and now that Matt is gone she would have to be the golden child which of course is way too much presure to anyone let alone someone that has gone through a lot of darkness in so little time.
As for scenes one that stands out to me is when Liv is talking to her teacher, and she only worries about her grades while the teacher is concerned for her health, and her negative voice only tells her that he thinks she’s stupid, and later sits down and plays an imaginary drums with two pencils, that right there was perfect because dear Lord was that annoying (great acting on Felton’s part) so Bellisario puts her in Liv’s shoes as she wants to have this conversation but is overwhelmed by the noices her “brother” is making, so finally she screams “SHUT UP” and since the teacher only sees her, the guy thinks she is talking to him.
The movie has an amazing director (Tommy Bertelsen) who is also a friend of Troian Bellisario, and that can only help with him understanding her story, or her motives to write it. Troian was also one of the producers.
I adore the editing in this film, it shows perfectly in the scene I just described. The music was perfect and placed on the perfect moments (like “have you seen Olivia”), the sense of humor that Live has after going through treatment is incredible relatable (as I had the same humor when I was hospitalized for self-harm and suicidal ideation) and I said similar jokes that my friends did not appreciated.
The final frame is of Olivia looking straight into the camera and saying “I’m okay” which is so perfect, because I can understand that she has a tough road ahead of her, so maybe there will be some relapses (hopefully not) but if they are it’s okay because treatment for any mental illness is an up and down thing and you are the only one who can uderstand your illness.
I think that thanks to Troian Bellisario and her beautifly written script and having the right help to make the movie (I will link all of those who were involved below) she shows us that we are not alone, and by givin a face to the dark twisted voice/side we all have she tells us “you are not alone, many people are feeling the same things”

Mirando al Cielo… Curando Heridas


En una noche montevideana con un lindo clima,  con un 18 de julio decorado aún por las luces del carnaval que terminó hace unos meses, me acerqué a la Sala Zitarrosa, para presenciar la Avant Premiere del documental del director Guzmán García, “Mirando al Cielo”.

Guzmán García montevideano de 34 años estrenó su segundo documental, el pasado jueves con sala llena, luego de su primer documental “Todavía el Amor”,

“Mirando al Cielo”  otra vez apostando al amor de alguna manera cuenta la historia de un conjunto de actores, que eligen tornar su dolor en arte en escena.  Ambas películas están conectadas también por su productora CORAL CINE, con la que García comentó a trabajar en el 2008.



Mirando al cielo-1
El equipo ensayando. Cortesía de “Mirando al Cielo”

El Grupo Ateneos es una troupe teatro comunitario. Sus integrantes trabajan durante el día y se reúnen a ensayar por la noche. En su mayoría, es gente con mucha sensibilidad que encontró allí una manera de poder expresarse. “Mirando al cielo” explora los mecanismos que tenemos los seres humanos para lidiar con el dolor y seguir creando a pesar de todo.


El director realiza un hermoso contraste, mientras el protagonista comenta su vida, vemos su trabajo en las tablas, ensayando, tal vez contando una historia que el director de teatro pidió que escribieran. El director logra contrastar el pasado con el presente, marcando una clara diferencia, el presente es alegre y lleno de compañeros, a diferencia del pasado que escuchamos mientras ensayan, tiene un aíre dulce amargo que es hermoso para las escenas.

Si bien se dice que la risa es la mejor medicina, que sin duda lo es, el tratar una temática dramática y difícil, puede ser otra forma de medicina, quizás al exorcizar los demonios del pasado que aún atan a la persona, esta puede mejorar y avanzar de aquel momento de tristeza.

Un gran aspecto a destacar es la gran comunidad que se generó dentro de esta agrupación de personas, algo que se veía con claridad en aquella noche, si bien era un evento formal e importante, el ambiente familiar entre la troupe de teatro llenaba de alegría la sala, las risas cuando se veían en pantalla o mismo como reaccionaban a sus historias. Ese lazo que se formó en el teatro con sus compañeros fue algo importante a la hora de salir a la lucha luego de tanta pena, porque tenían personas que no solo entendían sino que también no juzgaban el pasado del otro, tenían un lugar donde pertenecer, algo que el humano puede pasar vidas buscando sin tener fortuna.

Otro lazo importante es el que desarrollaron con su director, Guzmán García quien tuvo la capacidad fabulosa de conseguir que las personas se abrieran ante una cámara y con sus preguntas,  y que ellos contestaron con total naturalidad,  cosas de su vida que hacía mucho no hablaban, ese es un gran don en un director, lograr un lazo de paz con su sujeto a filmar, en este documental García hizo eso y mucho más.

La película nos deja con un mensaje, que para quien relata estas líneas es completamente universal. Al conseguir una agrupación,  al hacer arte con alguien (como es el caso de estas maravillosas personas) uno deja de estar solo, o al menos el sentimiento de soledad lentamente lo abandona.

Esta familia teatral nos está diciendo que cuando conoces a unas personas que se ríen de tus chistes malos, que te quieren, que entienden y (lo más importante de todo) que aceptan tu pasado, tienes tu propia comunidad, tu propia troupe, porque es posible hacerlo, al igual que ellos lo lograron.

De esta manera no cayeron en otros métodos violentos de sacar esa bronca, que solo los llevaría a un círculo vicioso, el teatro los saco adelante, y la comunidad del Grupo Ateneos los mantiene, esas uniones son tan pocas y rara vez vienen seguido, por lo que debemos aferrarnos a ellas para salir por el camino de la luz.

Trailer de la película: 


El cliente ¿siempre tiene la razón?

Cuando pienso en un trabajo difícil de hacer, me imagino siendo domadora de leones, o la esposa de Donald Trump cuando el viejo quiere sexo, pero la respuesta obvia  “lo peor es atender al público”.
 Existe una frase preciosa que cuando somos los clientes amamos, pero cuando lidiamos con los clientes es horrible y odiamos a quién la haya hecho popular…
Esa frase se contradice con aquella que pide ser tratado como un simple ser humano… un poco de amabilidad.
El cliente siempre tiene la razón Fue popularizado por los minoristas pioneros y exitosos como Harry Gordon Selfridge , John Wanamaker y Marshall Field .
Apoyaban  las quejas de los clientes para que estas  fueran tratadas seriamente para que los clientes no se sintieran engañados o engañados. Esta era una actitud nueva para la época  existían muchas versiones pero  por ejemplo el hotelero César Ritz decía siempre  “Si un comensal se queja de un plato o el vino, Y reemplazarlo, sin hacer preguntas “.
Una variación usada con frecuencia en Alemania es ” der Kunde ist König ” (el cliente es rey)
Pero, qué pasa cuando el “Rey” se convierte en dictador, convencido de ser capaz de tomar sus propias decisiones a pesar de que las mismas puedan perjudicarlo.
Una empleada (de iniciales L.A.) de una compañía de transporte, me comentó que tuvo un día particularmente duro hace una semana comentándome que no quería hacer un descargo clásico en Facebook porque no es su forma de expresión, pero sentía que lo ocurrido merecía ser hablado más allá de la empresa y sus compañeros.
“… Trabajando hoy al llegar a una parada para descender pasajeros, un Sr. que se disponía a subir (un afro-descendiente) por su propia voluntad abre la puerta de la bodega. Al bajar le pregunto que “que está haciendo? Que eso no corresponde que lo haga”; y procedo a guardarle su equipaje en la bodega que correspondía. A todo esto una Sra. Comienza a agredirme a los gritos de que soy una racista de m… Por hablarle así a una persona de color y bueno un rosario de cosas más; que uno como funcionaria no tiene a quien o como denunciar ese tipo de agresiones por delirios de la sra. Ya que en ningún momento agredí al Sr y mucho menos hice alusión a su color de piel. Me molesta que me tilden de algo que no soy, me molesta que cualquiera delire y te agreda (porque antes de atacarme a mi sin fundamentos tendría que haberse dado cuenta de lo fuera de lugar que estuvieron sus palabras hacia mi), me molesta que si pierdo tu equipaje por situaciones que escapan a mi persona (como ya ha sucedido de que han abierto bodegas y te los roban) me ataques, me molesta que si me preocupo por él también me ataquen, pero más me molestan estos FALSOS PURITANOS (para no decir metiches) que agreden porque si y luego nos tratan a todos los transportistas de degenerados, racistas (como me ocurrió), mal educados, muertos de hambre y un sin fin de descalificativos más sin siquiera conocernos y peor aún pretendiendo luego de que a pesar de las barbaridades que nos dicen los tengamos que tratar como deidades…” 
 Y si pensamos en cajeros, personas que atienden al público reciben gritos por algo de lo que no son culpables, porque tal vez su doctor se equivoco, ah pero no, usted debe ofenderse al punto de gritos con los que dan la cara por aquellos doctores.
O tal vez un paciente le grita a su psiquiatra “Deja de hablarme y dame mi medicación” cuando el especialista solo quería ver cómo estaba su paciente. (incidente del cual fui testigo personalmente)
Los maestros/profesores que no reciben el sueldo  que merecen para el trabajo que realizan en una situación normal, pero cuando le agregamos que normalmente corren el peligro de ser golpeados por los padres de sus alumnos, o que muchos padres asumen que las escuelas y liceos son edificios de crianza gratis o paga dependiendo de la institución. Podría decirse que los clientes rara vez tienen la razón. 
La moraleja sería: (Si es que podemos sacar algo de esto) Trata a los demás como te gustaría ser tratado, me parece  que si podemos popularizar esa frase, al reconocer que todos tenemos problemas, si vemos a los demás como humanos es posible que recibamos el mismo trato, aunque no deberíamos hacerlo por ese motivo. 

Girls Run The World?

Since I heard that they are in the process of remaking Ocean’s 11 with a female cast, I got really angry. I don’t see it as a victory for my gender, I see it as these amazing beautiful actresses are taking leftovers from their male colleagues. It’s like they are telling us, yes you do come from the bone of the male God made first. They deserve better! We deserve better! Why do they have to go and make that movie? This is the Cast: Dakota FanningHelena Bonham Carter Sarah PaulsonAnne Hathaway Sandra Bullock Cate BlanchettMindy Kaling Rihanna You’re telling me that there’s no original scripts around for them to work together?  I mean these women are pretty amazing, and incredibly smart, Sandra Bullock has her own production company called Fortis Films. Mindy Kaling wrote for “The Office” (she started at 26) and later went on to create, direct, produce, write, and star on her own show “The Mindy Project” and she’s still doing that despite FOX cancelling it, she fought and the show is now on Hulu. So what kind of message them re-doing a movie simply for changing the gender of the protagonist, is sending to little girls who want to be actresses or producers in the business. This is probably a rant I know but it’s been killing me… when are we going to get to see an all male cast of “Legally Blonde”, “Miss Congeniality” or “Steel Magnolias”? then I think we can be equal… I hate to feel like their doing a favor to women by letting them have these roles. I want to see a “Pretty Man” where a rich woman like Kate Winslet pays a male prostitute that could be played by Ryan Gosling and then give him money to buy himself a nice suit. I want that because “Pretty Man” sounds stupid to people, sounds like he’s a little boy, or people more twisted it sounds like he is gay, because nobody can say “pretty” to a men… you call them handsome. If women are taking on roles that used to be portrayed by men then the reverse should happen too.
