Tears will flow when a religious mother is forced to question everything she believes in after discovering her son is gay.
A tearjerker in the truest sense of the word, Prayers For Bobby is the rousing story of a suburban housewife forced to question everything she believes in when she discovers her 'perfect' son Bobby is gay. After Bobby tragically commits suicide, Mary (Sigourney Weaver) calls her religious faith and own personal bigotries into question as she reassesses the values she once held so dear.
Originally produced for US television, this adaptation of a true story is gloriously emotional stuff and boasts a soaring performance from Weaver at its core, who earned multiple award nominations for her role. An inspiring tale of a mother's love for her son, and a powerful critique of religion and homophobia.
