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.
This is the true story of Bobby Griffith, who killed himself in 1982. Bobby was from a devote catholic family and was also gay. When he came out, everyone tried to "fix" him and it drove him to see himself as a bad person. This movie had some amazing performances in it, so much so that it was hard to watch. It's not just a true story, but it's also performed in such a raw fashion, that it feels like you're standing in the Griffith living room watching it all unfold. A lot of similar movies about tragic stories have been made, but none of them share the raw emotion that this movie has. Sigourney Weaver is at the top of her game and it brings out the best in everyone, especially Ryan Kelley who gives the best performance of his career as Bobby. This is as real as it gets and you will need a box of tissues, but if this is a topic that effects you or someone you know, than I highly recommend taking the time to see this film.
