Outrage aptly describes the feelings/thoughts/emotions of most of us when those who are among
elected officialdom are also exposed as hypocrites. In the case of this documentary, it's particularly pointed, considering that the film focuses on closeted gay politicians who, in attempt to hide their own identities, scorn, rage against, and more importantly vote against legislation that would otherwise be of help in some way to the LGBT community. I say all hypocrites should be exposed, and it doesn't matter if you're gay and hiding it - if you're also bashing gays with your vote, then you deserve to be exposed. Yes, of course LGBT folks should know who their representatives are in any event so that they can vote accordingly, but the entire voting public should be concerned when lawmakers are deceitful. This film does a good job not only exposing some liars, but it explains why there's a need to expose these deceits at all.
I didn't have high hopes for this movie, but others wanted to see it so I agreed. I like Kidman
and Jackman, and I have nothing in particular against Australia - I just wasn't that interested in it, didn't know much about it, hadn't heard much buzz about it. And then, after I agreed to go, and the tickets were already bought, I found out that the run time is an hour and 45 minutes and I wondered how I'd tolerate this flick for that long. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised. The story is very, very sweet, without being too terribly sentimental or saccharine. And it is a lovely story indeed. I thought Kidman was her stunning self, impeccable acting, nailed it, and Jackman was very up to the part of leading masc man as the hunky cowboy. The young boy who played the "creamy" was also a perfect fit, quite the find - his acting and those beautiful, soulful eyes. Really, I've been recommending this movie ever since I saw it. So much for pre-judging!
