Audience Reviews for Prayers for Bobby
A sad real story about how intolerance destroys lives and how it takes sometimes a tragedy to force people to open their eyes, and Sigourney Weaver offers a powerful performance in this movie that tends a bit towards melodrama but is sincere about what it wants to say.
Excellent performance by Butler. Decent and often understated performances from Weaver and Czerny. Very well done for a made-for-TV movie, but somewhat underwhelming if it had been made as a general release feature film. Wonderful, thoughtful, real-life presentation of the struggles faced by everyday families with LGBT children.
Thought provoking made for TV drama about the irrevisible damage that can be caused by blind faith and bigotry as well as the callous hatred zealots inflict in the name of their own interest and prejudice against anything they don't understand or agree with. Sigourney Weaver is an amazing actress.
