Beach Rats is a provocative look at the personal and secret urges we often fear will come out into the light. Heath Ledger's shy Ennis del Mar falls in what he cannot articulate as love with Jake Gyllenhaal's Jack Twist over a long, lonely winter, and their lives bounce off each other's for years afterward. As with any other marginalized group, it's tricky to make a movie about the queer community—even if the filmmakers responsible are members of the tribe.
