Prayers for Bobby

An interesting and quite upsetting portrayal of what gay teenagers face when they come out to particularly religious parents.

I'm glad I never found myself in such a situation, but I can totally relate to what the character in this movie goes through, especially since you often read about similar experiences in the press.

Adding to its relevance, the movie is based on a real story.

Sigourney Weaver is very good in the role of the stubborn mother bound to learn a lot of lessons the hard way, and Ryan Kelley, as Bobby, is convincing and offers a touching performance.

Grade: 7
