    Luca: Learned it from you!

Fun Fact: Director Enrico Casarosa, said this about the movie’s themes of feeling like an outsider, “We kept on saying, “This is not about people accepting them.” Some people will accept and some people won’t. But it’s more about, “I’m going to fly my flag and I don’t care, and here’s me.” That was such an important part of this coming of age. And the friendship is such a big part of it, too, because they are the people that are around you and see you for who you are, and they don’t care [about] whatever differences [you have].”
