Audience Reviews for Out in the Silence
Out in the Silence doesn't recite the normal talking points on either side of the gay debate. It takes a different tack: the surprisingly short documentary tells two concurrent stories about LGBT people in a small town and how they try to change small town attitudes. The most heartwarming subplot involves a member of the church and how he becomes friends with the gay filmmaker and his partner. They don't necessarily see eye to eye, but we look in on their relationship from time to time. Will the doc change minds? Maybe not, but it shows both sides can talk about their differences and begin to bridge the gap.More
