Twitter Capsule:
Poignant treatment of grief and coming-of-age, but style, story feel amorphous. Some real lapses in judgment.
I'd like to feel more sanguine about a childhood tale that doesn't slap a label or obvious trajectory on a sexually ambiguous kid. Or about a rally of leading Danish acting talent. But it's hard.
