Excellent Documentary of a Sensitive Subject
24 September 2002 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This documentary depicts three families where gay members are shunned, or made to feel that "reparative therapy" is the only way they will once again be accepted by their families. Arthur Dong, director of "Coming Out Under Fire" and "Licensed to Kill", films both sides of this issue with quiet grace and subtlety.
