Thought provoking film about prejudice.
22 October 2001 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

After a somewhat mysterious failure counseling a gay youth, Peter questions his calling to the priesthood and drops out of the Episcopal seminary. He moves into a shack near the campus where his lifelong best friend Alex is attending college and where `Father Ed' a youngish Episcopal priest has his congregation. Father Ed has been an advisor and friend to Peter for some time and questions Peter's decision to give up his calling. Father Ed also uses his pulpit to question the preaching of a radical Christian cell on campus that is promoting prejudice and the hatred of homosexuals.

When a tragic accident occurs we see the aftermath and are forced to confront our prejudices as the details slowly come to light.

Overall this is an enjoyable story well told, that allows the audience to see other aspects of prejudice beyond the obvious.
