There's one review here that says that the movie is boring. In my opinion it is not, it just gets boring at certain point. I think there are indeed limitations with the story which could have been solved by letting us know a little bit more of Kay. I think that would have been the best solution since the alternative was letting us hear what Borgmann was feeling, his struggle which would have been a cheap resource. I don't agree with the commenter that does not understand why it is so hard for this man in this day and age to accept his sexuality. There are many factors and his parents' reaction works as a way to let us know what might be holding him back.
The weakness of the movie lies in the fact that it starts showing us something that we have seen many times before. At least the ending was satisfying, was simple and real.
