I think that there are many instances to apply a non-queer, heteronormative lens, there of course are many possibilities you could point to. However, through Macuso's lens, there are several points that are given as a queer film. I would argue the queering theme of split endings. The idea that one may not be able to be together in the end, seems to be a common thread in several of our queer films in class. The death of Jack in the film goes along with this notion. The entire journey of them not being able to be open and together because of society or the places in which they live, I would argue contributes to this ending that love does not conquer all, in which we have seen in such films like Heavenly Creatures.
