In The Language of Love, seventeen-year-old Charlie (Kim Ho) struggles to find the words to be true to himself… and his best friend.
Written and performed by Kim Ho and directed by Laura Scrivano, The Language of Love is a wry, sensitive and moving account of a young man coming to terms with his sexuality and facing a life-changing decision.
The film was written by Kim, under the mentorship of leading Australian playwright Tommy Murphy and was created as part of The Voices Project from the Australian Theatre for Young People.
Originally released in April 2013, The Language of Love has been widely acclaimed. The Advocate describes it as a film “to melt your heart.” It also earned two very big fans in Stephen Fry and Ellen DeGeneres. After seeing the film, both of them went out of their way to sing its praises on social media.
