superb!

this is a fantastic film based on a true story of homosexuality, it brings true colours out of an everyday gay man and how it feels to be gay and live in a strong religious family with a strong religious reputation amongst there weekly service. I think that its one of the best films ive watched on homosexuality and truly gives you an honest insite into how it feels to be gay. There are emotional parts in the film but the end angered me because without giving too much away... In the end, change was an option taken to late. But a brilliant film. Id recommend this to any homosexual that is either open or people that are confused as this film may help younger viewers think and help them understand themselves if they are as well as people understanding what its like to be gay/lesbian. Hopefully theyd take the time to watch this and realise that life isnt easy being gay or lesbian, its not a choice people make and hopefully it would stop people judging so much after watching. All in all, a real eyeopener.
