I just finished watching this movie.
I have never, never, have seen a movie like this before.
i am not a person who cries in any movie, its on an extremely rare occasion that i will cry in a movie, but this movie....
this movie.... had me bawling.
i have not seen a movie that has moved me this way , .... ever.
it is an extremely, important film, that(in my opinion, EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH.
it really shows not only about what happened to matthew shepard, but it brings to life the viewpoints of the whole town. both the good and the bad.. it' raw, and unforgiving. it conveys the realistic nature of the actors portraying their real life counterparts of the people of laramie, wyoming. they have done this task, very well.
what i have learned , watching this movie, is that no matter what your belief is on homosexuality, nobody, and i mean nobody , deserves that kind of violence. i believe that violence is never an absolution. this movie proves that when people who make bad desicions ,their actions can have a ripple effect through other people.in this case,the ripple effect not only spread through the people of laramie but to people throughout the world.
I want to be an angel not only to america, but to the world.
HATE IS NOT THE ANSWER.
You will understand what i just wrote above by watching the movie
so without making this review too long.
GET THIS MOVIE... YOU WILL BE TOUCHED
STOP THE HATE. STOP THE VIOLENCE. BE COMPASSIONATE AND FORGIVING. ....AND PRAY.
