    Oh... I haven't even seen this film and that moment when Bobby throws himself off the bridge just breaks my heart. Poor, poor boy. And Sigourney Weaver gives an absolutely stunning performance. It's great to think at the end that yes, there is hope.

    A very good story. Once again, people don't believe anything what's written in the bible. That are no words form God. That are words from people. And people make mistakes. God loves all humans and animals. God created hetero's but also homo's, bi's, transexuals. Even in the animal world it's very normal to be gay. We still have a lot to learn. But I believe that when you watch this movie, you can get another point of view when you first hate gays.

    I'm not gay. I hate gay people before! I fought with a gay but he never stop to make me a friend of him. He is my neighbor. One day i was upset something happened in my house so annoying and i had nowhere to go so i decided to get some whiskey with that gay neighbor. He took advantage to me, he pushed me to watch this movie. At the first part of the movie i started to get disliking it but the second part up to the last part. I have cleared my mind and my gay neighbor caught me teary-eyed.

    SO beautiful. Can't stop crying. People really need to open their eyes and stop saying stupid shit about Gays. No it's not really "right" but she is right to say that GOD loves YOU no matter what. No as is or butts. You can screw up SO bad and he will STILL love you you are his own, :) :(

    My man & I just saw the movie awhile ago. It made me cry :'( I am gay & my older brother is also gay. Mom came from a religious family. She was very disappointed at first when she found out that two of her children are homosexuals. But in the end she accepted both of us. We're blessed to have parents who are NOT homophobic. It's sad that they passed away 2 years ago. I miss them so much... Altough they're not around anymore, we're relieved to know that they loved us for what we are.

    I wish everybody would see this movie. I cryed and am not ashamed. But the saddest part is that still, 2011, some parents can´t accept their children´s homosexuality :( And it is so sad when young gay people have no one to turn to, no one to speak to about their feelings...
