The Movie Pariah

I went to see this movie last week and it was very eye opening. I love independent films and this one was a great one to see. I heard all the hype, but gave up on seeing it because I thought it would never come to Nashville, even though the writer is originally from the Nashville area.

To my surprise out indie movie theater here finally got it and I was so excited to see it. I actually went to see it twice (I do that a lot with movies, to catch what I missed the first time).  This movie was worth it. Why you may ask? It gave you a story of a young girl coming to terms with her sexual identity while dealing with the not being accepted by her mother. What I liked most about this film is that it did not focus on the sex aspect about her attraction to women, but her desire to be in a relationship with another girl.

She was a teenager going through a transition in her life and really had no one to talk to or confide in completely. I don't want to give any spoilers, but the movie had a few turns that I would have never gotten from the previews.

So if this movie is in your area please go see. No matter what you views are on homosexuality I think everyone can learn and take something from the movie.  I laughed, cried, and thought about several things while watching this movie.

This was a good movie. There were some scenes I felt uneasy about. The kissing scenes, close intimate scenes and the slap in the face scenes. I was feeling really uncomfortable and that kinda surprised me. Did it mean I'm not as ok with homosexuality as I thought I was?
