H. E. L. L. NO!!! Just because certain people of the 20th century and now the: [21st Century] people, EMBRACES: homosexuals... And now dirtied up the words: gay; and marriage; and... "perverted" the symbol and element of the: rainbow; which is suppose to represent "gay" and its movement... And they take it and put it in a made sentimental movie... Don't mean its right! Nor expectable, nor entertaining...

An 18 year-old son of a minister is sent to conversion camp to get the "gay" scrubbed out of him. The film is rich in adult themes---the continuing view of homosexuality as sin; the conflict of sexuality and fundamentalist; the scamish nature of many treatment centers in general; the parental conflict of children's values different from your own. Nicole Kidman floats along for the first 3/4 of the film as the quiet passive wife, but as her character steps up to keep her family from falling apart, Kidman shows her acting chops and takes over the film. It's a remarkable performance. --gurubob---------------------------------------90/100

Lucas Hedges much more convincing as the gay teen he is, he was unconvincing as a straight teen in his other films. He should stick to playing gay men.

Powerful. As a gay male growing up in Alabama, I saw many of my friends experience the same thing. I am thrilled that we are in a place and time to talk about this.

Should have been 20 minutes longer to beef up the case.

The film is somewhat less compelling than expected. Reasonably dramatic and with some highly emotional scenes. The storyline however lacked detail and at times simply plodded along. BE is packed with great actors not given much chance to live up to their potentiAl. But toward the end of the film both Kidman and Crowe really bring it, leaving you in tears. A good film bit no awards here I am afraid.

Great movie and it's sad and choking to see how there is still so much intolerance and ignorance in society when it comes to homosexuality. The movie shows the horror and psychological torture of the stupid conversion therapy.
