"...when I first came to Los Angeles, it looked like just this mass of dots... all jumbled and disconnected..."

5/5 and a recommended watch for anyone that reads my books (romance/angst/HEA)

I loved this movie. The acting was brilliant. The characterisation spot on. There was nothing wasted in the film, every piece of it was part of a wonderful story...

Every part was moving, from the disturbing imagery of the orientation reversal scene to the beautifully orchestrated sex scene. The most touching scene was the two main hugs and the kiss... I want to say more... but I wont.

In my honest opinion this is not a mormon bashing film, nor does it focus solely on religion vs homosexuality.

Instead it captures the struggle of self against family, faith and finding what is under the skin and what drives you as a human.

Just gorgeous
