Too flat to captivate the viewers
22 September 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This is the biography of John Wolfenden's personal and professional struggle to reform the British law concerning homosexuality.

As the film is set in the 50's, the views on homosexuality are very conservative. Much of the time is spent on attacking homosexuality as repugnant and revolting. If it was not made by the BBC, one would be inclined to think this film serves as a homophobic attack against homosexuals. The simple plot is told so plainly, and the characters are not engaging enough. The result is that the film is at times too flat, because it lacks the drama to captivate the viewers. I find the personal struggle of John Wolfenden is not so well portrayed. I would have liked more time dedicated to the relationship between him and his gay son. This film recounts the historic moment of the law change, but the film is rather forgettable. It could certainly be improved.
