Set against the music of Belle and Sebastian, Daniel Ribeiro's coming of age tale, The Way He Looks is a fun and tender story about friendship and the complications of young love. Leo is a blind teenager who’s fed up with his overprotective mother and the bullies at school. Looking to assert his independence, he decides to study abroad to the dismay of his best friend, Giovana. When Gabriel, the new kid in town, teams with Leo on a school project, new feelings blossom in him that make him reconsider his plans. Meanwhile, Giovana, grows jealous of this new found companionship as tensions mount between her and Leo.

"This winning movie — directed by Daniel Ribeiro, making his feature debut — dexterously weaves the social challenges of adolescence into a story of broader self-discovery."
Andy Webster - THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Admirable throughout is the balance that Ribeiro strikes between dewy eroticism and the contextualization of sexuality as just a single aspect of one's identity, albeit an essential one."
Inkoo Kang - THE WRAP

"Touching and well-acted, Brazil's Best Foreign Film entry is a worthy Oscar candidate."
Liz Beardsworth - EMPIRE

"The movie feels like the gentle first chapter in Leo's story; life and love stretch out ahead of him, like a deliciously winding road."
Moira MacDonald - SEATTLE TIMES
