HASH(0xa1522e64) out of 5 stars Acceptance, Equality, And Celebration: Honest And Free At Any Age Oct. 22 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The well meaning documentary "Out Late" covers a group of individuals whose stories might not ordinarily get told or explored. And yet, by no means, are the tales unique or isolated--just underrepresented. The five men and women featured in this hour long film all came to not only embrace the truth about their sexuality, but made the decision to come out and live openly despite their ages ranging between 57 and 79. Most had been married, had children, and lived full lives in some form of deception. They didn't have the openness, opportunities, and role models that we have today. But proving that it's never too late to be yourself, they have chosen to defy expectations and embrace the lives they were meant to live. It's hard not to take these lessons to heart and it is only through open expressions like this that the country's attitudes will continue to evolve in relationship to homosexual and transgendered issues. Some of the stories are impassioned, some exuberant, and some gently hopeful--but at only an hour, these are but brief insights into complicated lives.

The principles include:

Elaine: Came out at 79 in full celebration mode (seemingly inspired by the TV production The L-Word).
Ken: Came out at 72 for a chance at finding companionship.
Cathy: Came out at 57, after being in a 24 year same sex partnership, in opposition to unnecessary legislation.
Walter: Came out at 60, at church no less, and enjoying life in a solid and loving relationship.
Leanna: Transgendered at 60 after a life, including military service, in which femininity was longed for.

Each person gets approximately ten minutes of screen time with a brief introduction, a brief closing, and a primary interview section. For the most part, none of these people set out to be activists or examples. Cathy in Kansas comes the closest to activism, and it is her friendship with a non-accepting neighbor that provides the piece's most frustrating and complex dynamic. But whether they meant to or not, each stands as a message of hope to a new generation to understand and appreciate who you are. Each of the five wishes they had come out earlier in life because accepting yourself is fundamental to true happiness and enlightenment. Simple, honest, sometimes surprisingly frank (some adult language and brief nudity), "Out Late" is a film for everyone and should have great cross over appeal. It provides a voice to a generation that has had to live in silence. It's not exactly the full story, but it's a great introduction to the topic and this cast of real life characters. KGHarris, 10/11.

HASH(0xa1baa564) out of 5 stars Deserves 10 Stars for honesty and truthfulness. Sept. 23 2014
By Larry G. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
One of the BEST movies on Aging that I have seen since Pride in June 2014. And best of all, it talks about the Older Generation, those of us who have for years hid in Closets because we lived in the years when being a homosexual was considered to be a mental illness that could cause you to get electric shock or even frontal lobe surgery. And it is told by the real people who have come out of the closet after age 55. Wish I could give it TEN Stars.

HASH(0xa19dace4) out of 5 stars It's About Time June 27 2013
By laffing@themoon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I waited until my husband was out of reach before watching this documentary. I knew it would touch me in ways that he would only find baffling. I was impressed by the variety of people describing the complexities of their lives surrounding their "secrets." How painful it was for them to hide for so long, often leading seemingly straight lives for over 50 years and then coming to terms with the passage of time as well as the twists and turns of coming out to friends and family members who had known them for so many years without suspecting. It was heartbreaking for those who were never accepted by their families and I cried when one fellow explained that he wasn't even told about his mother's funeral because his step-sibling didn't want him to "cause trouble." So many films/TV series and so much literature is available about young people coming to terms with their sexuality and their identity awareness; it is wonderful that there is something out there to show the side of seasoned adults still learning about themselves and how they, too, are evolving with their newly embraced lifestyles. Bravo!

Presented as a documentary, it is very well presented with very credible characters and a work that should be made public on PBS and network TV.

HASH(0xa12a206c) out of 5 stars I don't know that there is a better time to have come out but all is courageous March 9 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I thought l was a late bloomer at 50. I don't know that there is a better time to have come out but all is courageous. As in the film l wonder what it would have been like younger with family and friends. At my age l don't care so much and am just happy to have put the puzzle together and begin living as l am meant to be. Plenty of gay women sites to find friends and support. You would be surprized how many come out late. The film addresses so many issues in a possitive upbeat way!
