There is a lot of symbolism in this movie drawn from natural settings where the very nature of faith is being considered by Brady. When he meets Clifford (Owen Alabado), and experiences falling in love, Clifford begins to love his complete self.
The film brings home a message that self acceptance and the coming out process from a perspective of faith are so much bigger than a church or an interpretation of scriptural writings. For Christians, it is in that personal deep soul connection that one has with God where His Love is so much greater than all of us. Basically, God accepts you as a gay person. Accept yourself.
Brady’s coming out process in the end becomes a spiritual journey for him of self acceptance and true faith.
The film’s writing and editing was weak in places which made it drag at certain points. It also inhibited some of the actors’ performances. However, overall it is worth the DVD rental.
