Lisa Carter:[sniff] I don't, um, I don't understand how anyone could choose to be like this... I'm just... it is not to be understood.
Matt Carter:I didn't choose this. I am this. Mom, I didn't choose to be gay. Do you think I'd choose to be this different from everyone else? That I'd choose to make you and Dad this upset? That I'd choose to lose someone as beautiful and wonderful as Allison? And what about AIDS? I mean, suppose someone wanted to be gay, would they want to be gay now?
Lisa Carter:I don't know. And I don't want to know.

Parents and their children should see this one!, 25 April 2000
Author: Jim Seeden ( from Rio Grande City, TX

This movie offers a sensitive and realistic, if not fully comforting, view of how parents can warp the lives of their children if they don't change their approach to them as they grow-up. An experienced high school counselor once told me that while parents should exercise consistent and reasonable control on younger children, they should ease into being consistently loving and supporting, not controlling, as their children move into the high school years. By that time values have been formed and continued control serves only to warp and distort relationships. This movie illustrates very well how unrealistic parental expectations can smother and alienate children. There are great lessons here, especially regarding sexual matters and the unique aspirations of individual children. This movie deserves a very wide audience. Beyond the message and plot, this is a movie with fine production standards and near brilliant directing. The holds and fades are timed to perfection and the cast is superb. I'd recommend this one to anyone without hesitation.
