Twitter Capsule: Romantic comedy(ish) about cute kid with geriatric fetish achieves humor, sweetness, resonant finish against heavy odds.

VOR:   Depiction of vastly cross-generational amour is gutsy—all the more so by being bisexual, interracial, and played for laughs, but not only laughs. La Bruce's familiar groove still isn't "familiar."
