Sweet Home Alabama screenwriter C. Jay Cox directs the independent romance Latter Days. Christian (Wesley A. Ramsey) is a young gay party boy who lives in Southern California. When a group of good-looking Mormon missionary guys move into his apartment complex, he's determined to pick one up. He ends up falling for sweet, innocent Mormon Aaron Davis (Steve Sandvoss), who's secretly struggling with his sexuality. Aaron slowly falls for Christian, even though he thinks he's shallow. The romance causes problems in both worlds. Christian tries to develop a conscience and ends up meeting Keith (Erik Palladino), a man dying of AIDS. Aaron has the difficult job of coming out to his mom (Mary Kay Place) and to his fellow missionaries. He comes against harsh criticism from the blatantly homophobic Ryder (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Latter Days won awards at the Philadelphia Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and L.A. Outfest. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

I was raised in the Mormon church and went to BYU for 1 year during the 1970's. This is a must see movie for everyone, whether you're Mormon, a parent, or of some other religion that does not tolerate gays. It shows us that being gay is not a choice that someone makes, it is the way they are born, whether it be the way someone is wired or their chemical makeup. Would we do water torture on someone just because they were born with green eyes? Families are being torn apart because of the intolerance and the hatred generated from this intolerance. This is an excellent movie to promote tolerance and love for all. I highly recommend seeing it.
