As a lover of cinema, I watch any film I can. I often find them all excellent concerning what I absorb and learn from the people responsible for making them, but the movies that move the floor for me are the best and make the experience of watching stories one of the most beautiful and positive in life. Becks is one of those films, an incredible true story about a young musician struggling with heartbreak and being a gay. Overall, a relatable story for all of those going through rough paths, artists, musicians, and people living life to the fullest. The cast is a fantastic power force in the story, led by the talented Lena Hall and Mena Suvari from one of my favorite films ever, American Beauty. Becks is a must watch if you are into indie films with a fantastic script and performances that will leave you breathless throughout the whole movie. Recommended if you want to be inspired!
It's hard to find a film nowadays that stays in your mind for weeks after you watch it. Becks is one of those movies. The story, the fantastic true story about a young musician who deals with heartbreak and abandoning her career as a response to this unfortunate event. I think most of you who have a dream and a purpose in life will find this movie inspiring, relatable, and worth your time!
Becks follows the story of an up and coming musician who suffers a tough break after catching her girlfriend cheating on her, and eventually ends up moving back home to live with her mother. I think what really cemented in my love for this movie is how this film portrays love. I liked that this film highlighted what real genuine love looks like, while also maintaining the realities of a complicated romance. I think what I liked most about this film though is the writing. Throughout this movie there were so many hilarious one liners, I honestly couldn't even keep track of how many times I physically laughed out loud at the dialogue of the characters, especially the banter that takes place between Becks and her old friend Dave! The writers of this film definitely knocked it out of the part when it came to raunchy yet subtle bits of humor in this film.

A nice love story
These are quite good times for LGBT films. 2017 saw a lot of solid releases and Becks can be easily counted amongst them. It is a simple, honest story that deals with sometimes complicated feelings of love, confussion, heartbreak and being stuck in life. The characters and situations all feel real and authentic so you do care about them and wonder how it is all going to end for them. Do not be worried by the sudden drop of rating on this site. It is currently at 5.7 and definitely deserves more, plus, the rating is much higher on most other film sites. The performances are really nice as well and another thing that especially stands out are the heartfelt, good music performances by Lena Hall. Kudos to the songwriters. Becks will appeal to everyone who enjoy small character driven indie films that deal with real feelings and real-life situations.
