A sensitive depiction of the life and death of a sensitive young man
10 January 2001 | by (Deep River, CT, USA) – See all my reviews

Cy Carter, in his portrayal of Matthew Shepard, brought to the screen a layered portrayal of a sensitive, intelligent and conflicted young man. But this film doesn't demonize his killers... they are also shown as multifaceted human beings. MTV should be commended for bringing this story to the screen. It's about time that people understood that discrimination of any type is the antithesis of the American Dream. We shouldn't need `hate crime' legislation to control our interactions. Being of a different race or sexual preference doesn't really make one a lesser person, and it's about time that people woke up and realized that one should not judge another by any superficial differences. This film rates a 10 out of 10 on the `jay'meter (with apologies to Corky for the format).
