Imagine Dragons' Mormon front man Dan Reynolds is taking on a new mission to explore how the Church treats its LGBTQ members. With the rising suicide rate amongst teens in the state of Utah, his concern with the Church's policies sends him on an unexpected path for acceptance and change.
Dan Reynolds shot for the moon in sending an email to Hans Zimmer, asking if he would be interested in writing the film's score. After watching the documentary, Zimmer agreed to score the film. See more »
A group of straight white males got together to make an outsider film about the LGBTQ community. It has it's touching moments but overall it is slow, boring, and full of story holes. It plays more as an apology letter from a man (Reynolds) who actively worked with the Mormons to discriminate against the gay community and is now worried that this revelation will impact his record sales.
It was almost as if the filmmakers just got access to the lead singer of a major band but couldn't find anything else for him to do but speak out about seemingly outdated issues that leads us to a pointless conclusion/solution.
Reynolds, who is a bit slow witted and very reminiscent of Andy Samberg's character in 'Popstar'... and also a Mormon, believes that the resolution to the Mormon/Gay conflict is to hold a concert event. Thats it. That sums up the whole movie.
I only gave the film a single star because I couldn't rate it any lower. It felt like a complete waste of time.
