Moving beyond tears, and the shocking ending caught me by surprise. Empathy goes a long way, but this film shows that, empathy, like charity, must begin at home...along with compassion, tolerance, and fairness. Whether its fear, errant biblical application, or plain stupidity that motivates a nation to "out" suspected homosexuals, things need to change there in Uganda. Note the word "suspected," since some citizen's names and photos have been published in the Ugandan scandal-rag "Rolling Stone" and targeted for prosecution and murder. Of course, it's easy to pick on Uganda. The whole world is filled with intolerables and people who support them, but let's face it, you got to pt out the biggest fires first, and Uganda is a raging inferno. I realize that this film probably won't be seen by those who most need to see it, and if perchance they do, it'll just harden their stone quarry mid-sections. But AfroPixFlix says see this. Be aware.
