Without being completely overwrought with blatant stereotypes, C.O.G. manages to tell the story of a young gay man, lost in the battle of growing up and finding himself, all the while moving to a remote area in Oregon to, in essence, live a little. In the process, he finds Jesus and then finds the hypocrisy that comes with many of Christ's followers. A splendidly acted and scripted film, most definitely recommended.
