Just Came Out: Sublime

The first release from the brand-new distribution label Cinephobia Releasing, Sublime is a thoughtful and tender handling of a teen’s emerging sexuality.

Shy 16-year-old Manuel (Martin Miller) comes alive when he, his best friend Felipe (Teo Inama Chiabrando) and other buddies form a garage rock band. The two boys, friends since childhood, have a close, easy relationship made even more intense with the band and their music making.

Strains develop for Manuel when his best mate starts dating a girl. Manuel also begins to date a female classmate, yet all the while suppressing his nascent sexual feelings for Felipe. Confused, and fearful that his feelings are not mutual, he retreats into himself, eventually lashing out which him to confront his feeling head on.

Director Mariano Biason has created a sensitive feature debut with this sweet, queer, coming-of-age drama.
