Good documentary - and the first I'd heard of the story!
14 February 2005 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Hi All, I caught this documentary by chance the other night on the ABC's Compass program. I was surprised that I hadn't heard of the story before, as I would've thought that I would have noticed had there been previous mention in the Australian media. I was surprised further when I went on to IMDb and found out that a feature film had been made (granted with very limited release).

I liked the insights shown in the film, particularly the honesty shown by J.P. when describing how, while he supported Marc, that the pressure being put upon their relationship was too much. It was also really interesting to see how Marc never lost sight of his original motivation: "I just want to take my boyfriend to the Prom!".

I was amazed that the school board didn't back down earlier, if only to avoid the bad publicity.

I hope that this documentary gets more coverage and the feature film (despite the reports of it's quality) are further released. Hopefully stories like these can show more young people that their sexuality should be accepted by society.

Cheers Paul
