Prayers for Bobby

Bobby Griffith was his mother’s favorite son, the perfect all-American boy growing up under deeply religious influences in Walnut Creek, California. Bobby was also gay. Struggling with a conflict no one knew of, much less understood, Bobby finally came out to his family.

Movie Reviews:

  • tmdb15214618: Prayers for Bobby is so clunkily wholesome and earnest, in such an obvious and belaboured fashion, that it imbues everything with a hokey artificiality, which reminds you, incessantly, that none of what you’re watching is real. It’s embarrassingly sappy. It didn’t work for me but, evidently, a lot of people don’t mind being drenched in sap.
