    Didn't we have the same exact thread a couple of days ago?

    Anyway, no I haven't read it. But I looked it up on Amazon for you and a lot of people have very good things to say about it.

    This book has been turned into a tv movie. It's going to be on Lifetime on saturday. Looks pretty good from the previews. Sigourney Weaver plays the mother.

    I keep seeing the ads for the movie (I like the late night Frasier reruns), and I know it's supposed to be inspirational. You know what I think would be more inspirational? Not being such an intolerant bigot as to drive your son to commit suicide in the first place.

    Just saying...

    My dad made sure I knew at an early age that boys don't cry; for better or worse that's deeply embedded in me. The video clip for this film made me openly weep the first time I saw it . . . I think it's going to be really powerful.

    Was pretty good. Might have made a good and powerful film for theatrical release, without all the commercials.

    The movie was cool but my whole beef is that why should someone have to die before friends and family realize that it is ok to be gay.

    My mother is the same strict religous way and I identified with the guilt when I started to realize that I like guys also. To this day 5 yrs later my mom still wont let up but I am not gonna kill myself for her to finally come around.

    Message is .........they will never fully come around and your life is not worth sacrifice
