Funny Boy-Netflix

A heartbreaking film that uses elements of West Side Story, Romeo and Juliet, and Diary of Anne Frank for the story about young Tamil boy who is coming out as gay against the backdrop of a civil war between Tamil and Sinhalese people in Sri Lanka. A rich group of actors bring to life these characters caught in the emotional and political crossfires of a battle that lasted twenty-six years.
