The good parts are scattered throughout this movie, but they are lost in the mess of the narative and the long scenes. It had a story to tell, not very convincing, but it was fun. Steve Sandvoss owned his scenes as the Elder.
Latter Days was a fairly mediocre affair in all honesty; playing up to stereotypes way too much... That aside some moments of the film were interesting but the campy drama severely out weighed what could have been a more mellow and engaging experience! Overall, you're not really missing much if you haven't seen this one!
A touching movie about accidentally finding somebody you did not know you wanted with an interesting sub-plot about how the LDS church deals with it's gay members. Supporting stars Joseph Gordon Leavitt and Jacquelin Bisset turn in great performances. It is interesting that they one of the reviews they are using to score this movie was done by the Dessert News, which is fully owned by the LDS church. No surprise then that that publication would have given it a bad review.
