Storyline

THE SUNDAY SESSIONS is an intimate portrait of one man's struggle to reconcile his religious conviction and sexual identity. The feature length documentary follows Nathan, a gay man in his late twenties, as he seeks counseling from a conversion therapist. Conversion therapy is the controversial, non-scientifically based process which aims to convert an individual's sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual. Although it has been discredited by all major American medical, psychiatric, psychological and professional counseling organizations, some therapists still offer the service for reasons almost exclusively rooted in a conservative religious belief system. The filmmakers had unfettered access to individual therapy sessions, family sessions, and a collection of weekend camps, and have crafted an emotional and psychological thriller which chronicles two years of Nathan's journey from acceptance to skepticism, all leading to a profound epiphany. Will Nathan succumb to the power...

Great film - I could feel the tension growing with each season
21 February 2019 | by adamschluterSee all my reviews

Truly enjoyed this documentary. A roller coaster of emotions exhibited throughout. For the people that think this film is backing the therapy, they clearly missed the message. This film shows that not only does this type of therapy not work, but it brings out true pain and disconnect to yourself.
