Blaise Godbe Lipman,
Touching movie with rough edges that's worth watching.
The movie is about a young gay man attending a religious college in the USA, who (along with his friends) faces prejudice, and who must overcome the prejudice as well as reconcile his faith with his sexuality.
I found the two main characters, Paul (Ron Petronicolos) and Alex (Mike Dolan) pretty convincing and touching, and these two actors' performances are what made me watch the movie twice... however some of the supporting actors were definitely giving rather wobbly performances, so the acting is at both ends of the spectrum.
However, the movie is worth watching for its portrayal of prejudice that still exists in America (and around the world!), and for its message of tolerance, hope and love. So despite some rough edges, it's a movie worth sharing, especially with any religious friends and family of gay/lesbians.
