“An impressive debut by Uruguayan writer Enrique Buchichio, Leo’s Room drifts in a laid-back, almost dreamy way toward edgy subjects usually accompanied by hysterical angst…It’s a delicately balanced mood piece that could segue from gay to art house venues.” – Variety
“Centering around a sexually confused young man named Leo the film is a sensitive exploration of coming to terms with your sexuality and understanding who you really are.” – Entertainment Focus
