Hi Michael, hi guys,
I have watched the movie a couple of weeks ago. I liked it. I wasn't triggered that much (as, for example, I was after watching irreversibe). However Mysterious Skin was a very good movie to watch and to feel through.
I don't know about its realism. My story was much different, and also when it comes to the life the two guys live during their teen years, I don't know either, but it looks disgusting (so, true).
I would recommend this movie to guys who are well in their recovery and who saw lots of movies based on good stories and inspired by high ideals.
So, thanks for letting my opinion reach you.
When you feel all alone and unhappy, turn to you Inner Child and talk to Him.
You will see He can comfort you like nothing else!
