YES & HOORAY FOR CHELY!!!!
Damn this was so good. So knew what she was feeling.
this is really good.
Lovely, inspiring, tear-jerking documentary about Wright's well-planned coming out, showing her extreme fear and vulnerability and courage. A great film about why coming out is so important and also so hard for some people, especially those from religious backgrounds. Wonderful, graceful, sincere.
Chely Wright is the first American country music star to come out as gay.
I'm not a fan of country music, and I had never heard of Chely Wright until I saw this film. What emerges from the film is a portrait of Wright that is inspiring and positive. She seems like a genuine person and a good role model of GLBT youngsters.
However, when she begins working with image coaches and turning her coming out into a media event, I found myself less sympathetic to her struggles. I understand her counter-argument -- that coordinating a media spectacle allows her to do the most good for others in her situation -- but I nevertheless wasn't pleased that what I was seeing was such a carefully designed product.
Overall, I found the film well-made, and by the end I liked Wright, but that's about all the film asked of me.
My only real issue, is that she isn't the first country singer to come out.. K.D Lang still counts. However, this isn't the main issue with the film, so doesn't matter.. I knew nothing about her before watching, but still found her story interesting and heartfelt.
Not knowing anything about Chely Wright this was a inspiring story to watch. Was glad I found it.
great documentary, it definitely shows the bullshit one has to endure just to be themselves. being a lesbian/gay person isn't easy being a gay/lesbian celebrity country star is even harder. falling in love along with that is the most difficult fear overtakes love making it impossible to be who you are and free. great movie I highly recommend.
Without any prior interest, I went to a pre-screening of this doc. And was so moved by it. It's a heartbreaking story of a truly good girl, coming to terms with the way she was born. She's at the very top of her game, and wants to kill herself. Never realized how White & Christian country music in Nashville has to be, it sustain itself.
A great documentry loved it
