Storyline

Joe Marshall is the perfect father and husband and is respected and admired in his community. But Joe is living a lie that he has tried to keep suppressed throughout his marriage. It is only when Elaine catches her husband in bed with his lover that Joe's lie rips through the facade. Joe's lover is a young man. This film is an honest, moving account of a woman struggling to cope with the discovery that her husband and father of her two children, the man that she has worked with side by side, is gay. The movie sees all four members of the family struggle to integrate this new complication into their family life. Written by Keith Rogers

This movie is garbage
6 January 2006 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Well, when reading other user's comments, I agreed on one point: the movie pictures in a very believable way the reaction a wife can have when discovering after twenty years of marriage that her husband is gay: the reaction of her colleagues was also portrayed in quite a realistic way and I was beginning to think it was a fairly good movie until one moment, which, in my opinion, ruins the entire movie: it is the moment when the son, who has attacked a young gay man because he couldn't bear the fact that his father is gay sits in front of the judge in the presence of the victim, pleads guilty (finally, he previously lied to the court)and then his victim stands up and suddenly says "Your honour, is it too late to withdraw my complaint?" So, to sum up, the most disgusting character in the movie just acknowledges he assaulted an innocent victim because he had to pass his nerves on someone, and then, everything is O.K.? No, this is unacceptable, it is a barely disguised attempt to encourage homophobia (in this case, but this can be extended to any other aggression motivated by hatred). Moreover, the story is supposed to take place in Oregon, which is considered a quite open-minded state in the U.S.What a shame! This movie would have been far better if someone had beaten the hell out of of this repulsive garbage of a son!!!
