I don't know what I was expecting From this film but this certainly wasn't it. You'll be pleasantly surprised to know it isn't quite as depressing as it sounds like it is (maybe that's why the oscar buzz died down) and it's a beautiful story of a boy born to a family of faith who did what they could to remedy a situation they considered a sin. I wasn't pleased with a scene that set things in motion that could be misconstrued but I won't spoil what it is. It is hard to watch at times and hard to believe there are uber religious people who spew this kind of fear and hate into people, but the film had a (mostly) uplifting ending, and thank good. Coming out sobbing out of 'a star is born' is enough for the week.
