Mysterious Skin (2004)

Type :   Production countries :  


Born in 1972 in Kansas, 8-year-old Neil McCormick (Chase Ellison as a boy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an adolescent) and Brian Lackey are sexually abused by their baseball coach . Both boys are targets for abuse due to their dysfunctional families: Neil's single mother is neglectful and preoccupied with a string of boyfriends, while Brian's parents are on the verge of divorce.

Neil showed signs of being homosexual at an early age -- he was fascinated with male models depicted in his mother's Playgirl magazines. He interprets the coach's abuse as an initiation into sexuality, and becomes sexually compulsive, being particularly attracted to middle-aged men. Eventually Neil leaves home, drifts into petty crime, and becomes a prostitute in New York City. His friend Wendy , who harbors an unrequited crush, describes Neil as having not a heart, but "a bottomless black hole."
