Prayers for Bobby


USA 2009, 86 minutes
Dir. Russell Mulcahy
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Gay Cinema

Topics: Religion.


Aroview: Tragically true tale of a zealous christian whose attempts to convert her gay son to heterosexuality lead ultimately to his death and sets her on an entirely unexpected journey.

Powerful subject matter doesn't need Mulcahy's typically heavy-handed direction and some of the dialogue is a little on-the-nose, but Weaver's performance lifts this out of mere movie-of-the-week territory.
