Decent flick about coming out
4 November 2015 | by calb-05915See all my reviews

If you read the reviews or the trash from haters on these boards, you'd think this was a major stinker.

it's actually a decent movie. It is not a romcom and if you watch the trailer, it shows clearly the focus is not on the lesbian couple. this movie is about parents experience after their daughter comes out to them. This isn't something you typically see from Hollywood.

one thing i see is critics bashing the movie because it doesn't seem current with today's modern times of lgbt acceptance. sorry, i think these critics are out-of-touch and don't realize that yes, many still live in very conservative communities where being gay is not accepted, even in the states believe it or not. Even if parents are OK, it is difficult to instantly let go of your dreams for your kids having a *normal* life and worry about social scrutiny your kids and family will now face.

this is well acted, particularly by Heigl, Emond, Wilkinson, and Gummer as they have the biggest roles here. Too bad Bledel's character didn't have much to do. The music could have been bit more subtle and the ending seemed lacking a bit. Transitions at times aren't very smooth, but expected due to the low-budget.

if this movie actually got a change to be shown in theaters and marketed to general audiences (not just big cities), I could see this being a sleeper hit. But nowadays, only small movies that are considered Oscar contenders will get playtime in theaters. too bad. this is worth a look.
