A Fantastic TV Film! Young and Old Alike Will Benefit
22 January 2002 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when it came out on TV. I was thoroughly impressed with the way this subject was handled. Marlo should be very proud of her work. I was 26 when I saw this and think this is a film all young people should see when considering coming out to their parents.
