When TJ drops to his knees for his tearful monologue, the numbers on the church sign behind him are missing, though they are there for the rest of the film. It appears that this scene was filmed separately and edited in. See more »

Great Movie
5 October 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Being Southern, Seeing Sordid Lives and all the other great titles by Del Shores, I can't say enough about this film. I am an ordained nondenominational minister with a Doctorate of Divinity. And all of these films hit home. I would not hesitate to recommend this to any and all as would I would the film "Bridegroom" . That film is also an eye opener. Try the film, it has a lot of great laughs and a lot of friendly tears. There is a message there for any and all. I do a lot of counseling in my practice and can tell you of the way too many times I have had to talk a kid down off the ledge so to speak. It is a shame that some will chose death over homosexuality or Bi etc.
