Amazing Indie Film
3 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This theme is a passionate one for me having gone through this in my life. I applaud the writers directors and cast for this amazing film. I truly was moved deeply. I cried during the last scene. So powerful. At times the acting was so realistic it seemed more like a documentary or reality TV show. I felt in every moment the intensity of Sam's hatred for his dad and for his mom's co dependency. I so know how it is to have a mask girlfriend who wants to be loved so desperately. This movie can be so inspiring for other gay and lesbian youth who feel so weak to empower then to be authentic in their lives. How amazing is it to think you walk alone and then find that in truth you have someone who loves you. That part was the most amazing to me.
