  1. Dogville59's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    A moving treatment of a difficult subject done well because of the great acting of Sigourney Weaver. The one issue I have with this film is that Sigourney's character, Bobby's mother Mary, went from speaking at one town hall meeting to being in the midst of a San Francisco Pride Parade. I felt there should have been more examples of her progression from speaking at one small meeting to being in a major Pride Parade.

    Cried so much I found myself drowning! How sad it is to not be accepted by your own mother...

  3. Caio Casagrande's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    A filme almost any non-straight person can relate to. Every mother should watch it.

  4. ADZERTY's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    J'en sors un peu gêné : le propos du film est important mais mis en scène d'une manière bien trop démonstrative. Le réalisateur surjoue du registre pathétique au point qu'on ne parvient plus, hélas, à s'identifier aux personnages, ni à accéder à l'émotion que le film s'efforce (en vain !) de susciter.

  5. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    Sigourney just fits perfectly the role of the gay mom drama. For TV production, but still a nice one.

  6. Rocktheboule's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    L'histoire de cette famille est touchante et intéressante. Cependant la réalisation est peut-être un peu trop banale.

  7. f-nanda's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    Be prepared to cry your guts out.

  8. Julien Mercier's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    Le traitement de la thématique, pour une fois, va au-delà du simple "coming out", questionnant la difficile confrontation de l'amour maternelle à celui de la foi religieuse. L'interprétation des acteurs est poignante. On regrette cependant une première partie contenant quelques plans très clichés et sans grande valeur narrative. La bande originale est également un peu trop présente par moment.

  9. Mehmet Ali Karar's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    ...duygu seli... ağlamamak için kendinizi sıkı tutun! bir anne ile oğlunun yaşam trajedinisi anlatan harika bir eşcinsel sineması yapımı.

  10. Kevo Mercure's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    Seul le theme est intéressant

  11. Caillouquiroule's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    D'un sujet a priori intéressant ressort un téléfilm à effets assez vulgaires. Le drame est alourdi par des choix narratifs et de montage discutables.

  12. Ally's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    I don't watch many Life Time movies, or Life Time in general to be completely honest, but I was really impressed by two movies that the station showed in 2009. Prayers for Bobby being the first, and Georgia O'Keeffe being the second. Russell Mulcahy's directing was iffy at times, but that was overpowered by the performances the cast delivered – especially the ever talented Sigourney Weaver.

  13. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Prayers for Bobby

    for the sake of the performance and the positive message only, 8/10 my review: http://lasttimeisawdotcom.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/last-film-i-saw-prayers-for-bobby-2009-710/
