Prayers for Bobby

Before you echo "amen" in your home and place of worship. Think. Think and remember a child is listening.
Prayers for Bobby
True story of Mary Griffith, gay rights crusader, whose teenage son committed suicide due to her religious intolerance. Based on the book of the same title by Leroy Aarons.


Prayers for Bobby is not a good movie. It's so wholesome and earnest, in such an obvious and belaboured fashion, that it imbues everything with a hokey artificiality, which reminds you, incessantly, that none of what you're watching is real. This clunkiness prevents the story from forming the emotional connection necessary for a biopic to succeed. Although it didn't work for me, evidently, a lot of people don't mind being encased in sap.
