Great Movie
5 October 2015 | by chuckpacecarSee 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.
