If you’re in the mood to have your heart melt, then we have just the thing for you. Australian highschool student, Kim Ho, stars in his beautifully written short, “The Language of Love”.
The short follows a highschool student, Charlie, who is unable to focus on his French exam when the assignment asks him to write a letter to his best friend.
He pulls the audience into his own world and eventually reveals his inner-struggle. He is in love with his best friend- who happens to be a boy. We are allowed into his very personal emotions of passionate confession, confusion, and fear.
“Its not because he’s a boy,” Charlie explains, “He just happens to be one and I can’t figure out if that makes it wrong”
Charlie pulls us deeper and deeper into his personal feelings and ultimately reaches a realization.
“You always hear people say it’s weird and just not normal, but isn’t that the point of love?” he asks. “To transcend normalness and become something special?”
Needless to say, this short film is beautiful, inspiring, and heartwarming. Watch it for yourself below:
