Impossible to Watch
I found this earnest effort difficult to sit trough. The pacing, the amateurish performances, the clichés, all made me want to go watch something else. The direction was tedious and the acting was on a level with high school drama. The father, in particular, was a cartoon depiction of a fundamentalist Christian. I only gave it a three because it contained one scene in an acting class where Matthew Shepard is portrayed in what seems to be purgatory and that scene was touching. The rest of it was painful to behold, and not in a good way.
If you want to watch an excellent movie that explores the conflict of religion and coming out, watch "Prayers for Bobby."
