Just Came Out: The Perfect David

Sixteen-year-old David (Mauricio Di Yorio) is much like any teenager, but his boyish good looks rest upon a hulking, muscular body. His weightlifting obsession is driven by his mother Juana (Umbra Colombo), a troubled artist whose only goal is to have her son reach physical perfection by his seventeenth birthday.

With countless hours spent at in the company of pumped-up gym rats, David desperately searches for what it means to be a man while also navigating his burgeoning sexuality. With his birthday approaching, Juana demands growth at any cost. Soon David’s cohorts offer him dangerous chemical shortcuts, sending David into a dangerous spiral.

From co-writer/director Felipe Gomez Aparicio, The Perfect David is at once a delicious ode to the beauty of the male form, a warning of the dangers of seeking absolute perfection and a striking character study of a young man in trouble.
