    People keep complaining about the religion, but the point of this movie was to show the struggle between homosexuality and religion. My friend went through this same stage and it hurt them a lot. I went through it as well when I was trying to figure out why I didn't have sexual desires because I was called a freak. Just because you are gay, doesn't mean you can't be religious. That's what the movie was showing. Also, the movie also symbolizes accepting yourself and moving on. You saw this when the main character accepted themselves and then (SPOILER ALERT) their sister came home. This movie showed what it's like to be religious and to be gay.

    I saw the movie last night. I am so glad that I ignored the negative reviews. It was an awesome movie with a beautiful main character. He is so cute and can sing like an angel.  I enjoyed the move tremendously.  I would love the soundtrack too.

    This movie is great. I was hesitant and skeptical to watch it, but I'm glad I took this Sunday evening to. It's definitely in my top five for gay films. It has definitely change the future me, especially how I would be a father, if by small chance I become one.

    Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption... No person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education.

    Recién termino de ver esta película por Netflix. No tengo palabras para decir lo maravilloso de la historia, de las actuaciones, el mensaje, la música. Todo está tan increíblemente bien hecho. No se pierdan esta película bajo ningún punto de vista. Hay una cantidad de emociones conjugadas en cada parte del relato. Todo tiene una conexión muy especial, y a la vez simple, que hace que el mensaje se pueda captar y entender de a poco, para llegar a la conclusión de una forma cero previsible y cero golpe bajo. Extraordinaria.

    An Early Frost (1985)

    Set in the mid-eighties Michael Pierson, a young gay man, is struck with AIDS in the prime of his life. He's forced to be open about the disease and his homosexuality for the first time with his co-workers (he's a successful lawyer) and family. He, and the people around him, must face up to the inevitablity of his death and the disease that's killing him. "An Early Frost" was many people's first look at an AIDS victim as a human being instead of a statistic.
