Victor (Victor Rasuk), a teenager with a dark Brillo pad of hair, fancies himself the young Casanova of his sleepy Dominican neighborhood on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Early on, he meets Judy (Judy Marte), who has the crystalline sexiness of Chloe Sevigny. Peter Sollett’s movie, which is small-scale and delicate, with closeups that caress every quiver and pore of the actors’ faces, is smart enough to get us rooting for Victor even as it prods us into seeing him through Judy’s divided eyes and heart.
