Pre-AIDS TV-drama about gay young man who comes out to his parents. The father--frustrated, embarrassed and angry--turns away, but mom reaches out to her boy. A bit of an improvement on taboo territory over the 1982 coming-out opus "Making Love", which didn't allow itself to explore homosexual feelings, just embalmed embraces. This one is brave enough to show that gay people have desires like everyone else. Unfortunately, the piece keeps going back to the parents in question (Marlo Thomas and Martin Sheen are the stars, after all). Still, it angered me to see so much emphasis on the mother being "the courageous one", noble enough to offer her hand in friendship, and reassuring when she calls at the end with happiness in her voice. Naturally the parents would be feeling guilty and responsible and ashamed (that's only natural), but just whose story is this?
