I'm going to give the movie "2 thumbs up". The movie depicts a young man dying of AIDS and fears his mother knowing because she evicted him years prior because of him being gay. An all too familiar story in the gay community. However, the best part of the movie is watching both parents come to term with their sons sexuality. Audrey Grant (played by Julie Andrews) thought she didn't need any help in dealing with her son's sexuality until she met LouAnn Barnes (played convincingly by Ann-Margaret) and was forced to face her disappointment of not having grandchildren. The best lines however we delivered by Ann-Margaret and one can't help but laugh at her sarcasm and wit. In perspective, in spite of the subject matter, I found it to be a "feel good" movie and one that will be kept among my favorites.
