Trivia

Ellen Page has been attached to the film since its inception, seven years in total. She first became attached after producers Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher sent her a copy of Cynthia Wade's documentary short. See more »

Goofs

Laurel and Stacie first encounter each other at a volleyball game with each playing on opposite teams. Stacie serves to Laurel, whereupon Laurel's team successfully returns the ball and the game is over. However, in volleyball, only the side that is serving can score a point and they must also win by two. For the game to be over, Laurel's side would need to get the ball back to serve the winning point. The director may have decided to skip that in order to keep the story moving. See more »

Quotes

Steven Goldstein: Steven, with a V, that means "Very Gay". And when people disrespect my gay brothers and sisters, I rain terror on them! Shock and awe, shock and awe.

A good movie with so much hateful reviews
3 October 2016 | by chenggagaSee all my reviews

Seriously people!!! So much hates on this review section.

At first I'm gonna tell you how i found this movie. I was searching for a romance movie on internet then i found it. I bought the DVD and decided to watch it alone, because it's a Homosexual romance (first i thought it's really a gay lesbian movie ).

But it was more than that. Once upon a time i was homophobic person. I hated gays and lesbians more than i hate imaginary gods. I after realized that homosexuals are humans to. They have emotions like strait people. They love, they cry and they laugh.

This movie based on a true story and very heart touching. I cried after watching this movie. Seriously it's very cute romance with saddest images of gay community.

People, if you don't like this types of movies then don't watch. But stop saying nonsense about this. I'm from Bangladesh, a country with so much ignorance and hate. But i came to light, it's time for you to come out too.

After all, it's very emotional movie with complexity. I liked it and watched twice.
