Movie Info

They say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and in this look at one of the most polarizing religious and sexual debates in America, filmmaker Robert Cary attempts to reconcile homosexuality with Christianity. Mark (Chad Allen) is a young gay man who has fallen into a dangerous cycle of hard drugs and risky sex. Recognizing that his sibling may not have the strength to pull himself back from the edge, Mark's brother checks him into the Genesis House Christian retreat in New Mexico -- a place far removed from the temptations of the big city. Genesis House is run by a deeply spiritual, middle-aged couple named Gayle (Judith Light) and Ted (Stephen Lang). After losing a battle with sin back when she was young, Gayle has dedicated her entire life to rescuing young homosexuals from their own inner demons. In order to help Mark through the process, Gayle assigns Scott (Robert Gant) -- one of the program's advanced "fifth phasers" -- as the newcomer's mentor. When Gayle notices that Mark and Scott's relationship is intensifying, she sees the development as a threat and fights back in order to prevent her carefully controlled world from falling apart. The spectre of damnation looming constantly over their shoulders, Mark and Scott are finally forced to confront the truth about their own true natures.

A bit melodramatic, but I am glad this is a more mature version of But I'm a cheerleader. I love it

The only real surprise of this movie is its tenderness. Once the story is laid out, you know what's going to happen. However it has solid characters and good acting. I wasn't bored.

Save Me doesn't poke fun at anyone's beliefs. It takes a more nuanced humanistic approach.

Excellent work by the cast and an even handed approach makes this an enjoyable film. Everyone was shown to have flaws, some more severe than others but all were recognizable people with good intentions.
