Description I AM MICHAEL is the incredible true-life story of Michael Glatze (Franco), a high profile gay youth activist who created a national controversy when he claimed to no longer be gay and became a straight Christian pastor. The film follows Michael from his life in San Francisco with his boyfriend Bennett (Quinto), where he pursues political activism, a journalist career at XY Magazine, social awareness, and sexual exploration, to his days of personal self-discovery. After a traumatic scare, Michael is plagued by doubt and paranoia, and begins a religious reawakening. Michael renounces his gay lifestyle, rejects his friends, and endeavors to find his "true self." He explores Buddhism and Mormonism, yet ultimately lands at a Christian Bible school in rural Wyoming where he meets his girlfriend, Rebekah (Roberts), and becomes the pastor of his own church. This powerful new film captures one man's haunting journey through modern concepts of love, denial and redemption.

    This movie is terrible, I won't call it Christian just because of the ending. It's like a pornography with a Christian label!

    Wow! This is amazing. I wanna see this movie so bad. God can change you and give you new desires. What you must do is repent of all of your sins and put your full trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Really... Hollywood must be going backwards in time... I mean, god vs gay? We find new stars, galaxies and stuff everyday and still talking about bible stories and ancient moral standards here?
  • Amino 2017-03-02 09:29:52
    Refreshingly honest for immoral Hollywood but I have a feeling the devil plays both sides!

    So is this religious crap pushing religious agendas or social justice warrior shit pushing SJW agendas? Super gay though. All that's missing is Elton John riding around on a pink unicorn and a 12 inch dildo is the 'horn'

    This is a true story, and just proves homosexuality can be overcome.

    the end of the film let you think he's having another panic attack so he's going to watch again his believes. I think that a gay man acting the way the characher acted..i mean..a gay man who's trying to find in God a love he can t find in guys is just trying to find a normality instead. so the answer is not in God or maybe god is just a part of this searching but what thi guy miss I think it's the will of normality. Normality that maybe gave him a sense of peace during childhood. But he is still gay and will remain gay for the rest of his life,,,i mean he will always be attracted to men for the rest of his life. so the answer is not god or an heterosexual sexuality as a men but I think what he misses is to be a woman who wants to have an heterosexual lifestyle and a normal heterosexual lifestyl. so the answer for this man (who exists in reality, as the film is based on a true story) I think is to become a woman and marry a straight men to find the sense of normality he misses. Sorry for my eng.

    "I wanna tell you about a little secret about a great gift from God. Fear" Yeah, if you're going to try and paint Christianity in a bad light, at least try to know what you're talking about. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
