The Way He Looks
Our next Rialto Recommends is 2014's THE WAY HE LOOKS. Leonardo is a blind teenager searching for independence. His everyday life, the relationship with his best friend, Giovana, and the way he sees the world change completely with the arrival of Gabriel in this Sao Paolo set feature. The Hollywood Reporter said "The sweet and beautifully observed feature debut of Brazilian writer-director Daniel Ribeiro." While the San Jose Mercury News said "Ribeiro poignantly reminds us of unexpected first loves and the triumphs of being attracted to someone who truly cares about and understands you." And the Washington Post raves "Ribeiro has an uncanny eye for the telling emotional gesture, and "The Way He Looks" is full of them." THE WAY HE LOOKS is streaming on Kanopy and Sundance Now or is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu, and Apple HERE.
