Out Now

Tom is a high-school student, relentlessly persecuted by his classmates because he looks like a fag. He endures taunts and physical violence daily. He finds solace in Internet chats, but finally must make the leap to in-person contact.

The scenes in which Tom is attacked are unpleasant, of course, but on the whole the movie has a sweet tone to it, with a few rays of sunshine breaking through the clouds at the end.

Out Now, dir. Sven J. Matten, 2005 Germany, 21 min., in German with English subtitles
