Editorial Reviews

A stirring documentary about a Christian fundamentalist conversion camp and the young people who fought against it. When 16-year-old Zach told his parents that he was gay, they sent him to Love In Action, a religious organization that promises to cure homosexuality. Originally for adults, Love in Action had recently begun a program for teens, many of whom were sent there involuntarily. The camp's draconian methods for 'sexual redemption'; prompted filmmaker Jon Morgan Fox to document the ensuing protest against the group. Including interviews with several youths who had been in the program, the then current director of Love in Action (himself a former gay) and many young protesters who were compelled to mobilize against the organization, this documentary is an important look at gay youth, intolerance and skewed religious beliefs.

Good documentary, details the impossible attempts by religious zealots who try brainwashing people into changing their sexual orientation. One teenager is highlighted in particular, and thank God (really) that there were lots of protests against the harm the adults were doing to him. As a result, the religious organization and affiliates became the focus of legal and moral criticism and have since been greatly diminished. This is a good story and a lesson in the evolution of freedom in our country.

2.0 out of 5 stars An earnest, well-meant failure July 26, 2012
Format:DVD
I am happy and very grateful that I'm gay. I'm also happy and very grateful that Jesus loves me exactly as I am and MADE me exactly as I am. I would tend to support a movie like this, but it surprised me by leaving me completely flat.

All the people interviewed as victims of Love in Action seem to be quite articulate, healthy and remarkably well-adjusted, which leaves me asking, "What harm did LIA do these people?" If anything, they seem better adjusted than people I know who never even heard of LIA or Exodus or any other ex-gay ministry.

It's as if the LIA experience strengthened them and clarified for them that being gay really ISN'T something they can change. That's good, not bad. When a documentary that proposes to expose something bad ends up making it look not so bad at all, the documentary must be a failure, right?

There's no passion in this movie, no fire in its belly, no exposé of abuse or injustice, nothing to get stirred up and indignant about. The movie just shows a few mild-mannered, well-intentioned, respectful protesters protesting against a few mild-mannered, well-intentioned (misguided, certainly, but evidently harmless), respectful people running a silly but harmless sort of ministry.

There's a lot of talk in this movie about shame and fear and hatred, but there is not a single sign of anything like that anywhere in it. It's just very bland. A lot of talk, but no bite.

I'm not saying that the ex-gay movement is harmless by any means, but that's how this movie makes it look; so this movie fails in its mission.
