Telling
20 April 2013 | by les-reedSee all my reviews

Such a shame that very sad subject matter often produces good books and films: this is one such case. Beautifully shot - with partial split-screen imagery - the characters were portrayed to perfection.

A telling story indeed, of the inhumanities heaped on some, by others, because they dared to be different - in this case, being gay. Lovely film, and highly recommended. Sometimes gay themed films turn out maudlin to say the least, but when the issue is dealt with in a manner that shows exactly how painful and damaging such prejudices can be, you get a warm glow, knowing that there are people ready to expose such nastiness - in the form of this film - so that well-balanced folk can really see what some of us have to contend with!
