WATCH: Young Love Comes Beautifully of Age, and Out of the Closet, in “The Language of Love”

Well, a star is born and his name is Kim Ho. The 17-year-old wrote and stars in the delightful coming-of-age, coming-out short film, The Language of Love — directed by Laura Scrivano, as part of the Australian Theatre for Young People’s The Voices Project.

The Language of Love is essentially the inner monologue of Charlie, a young man realizing that he’s in love with his best friend, Sam, and all the conflicting emotions that entails. Simple but effective, the film has racked up over 50,000 views since launching less than two weeks ago.

We guess, some languages are universal.  And make sure to check out the “making of” video here.
