Subject:Help a friend find a movie
Time:10:39 am
I got this request from an old high school friend today:
Some of you know I teach OWL (a relationship and sexuality curriculum). This weekend is our second OWL weekend in the series which focuses on GLBTQ issues and relationships. I am looking for a movie to show in our free time that focuses in a positive way on GLBTQ relationships or shows growth toward a positive and understanding relationship...it can be between GLBTQ folks or between someone who is GLBTQ and someone who is hetero. The audience is junior high age, so hopefully no R rated movies.
Anyone have ideas for her?

Hm. Positive, not R?

The Crying Game
Bound
Priscilla? Not so much about the relationships, I guess.
Brokeback Mountain
The wedding banquet. Good movie, good message, not too serious.
Philadelphia
Hedwig and the Angry Inch

It's a lot easier to come up with inappropriate ones than appropriate ones. Possibly because of the movies I tend to watch.

Here's a list with ratings:

I am surprised that "The incredibly true adventures of two girls in love" was rated R. Maybe there was more nakedness than I remember? Same with "But I'm a Cheerleader".

"Chutney Popcorn" was fun, although I can't figure out what it was rated (maybe it didn't get general release?)

"But I'm a Cheerleader" was an adorable movie; it's the only one I could think to suggest. There's no graphic nudity or sex scenes (although there's implied sex and masturbation in several scenes), but there's a lot of coarse language and innuendo, which I believe is what earned it the R rating. IMO it's acceptable for a high school audience, but probably not junior high (certainly not sixth graders) due to the language and innuendo.

Rocky Horror? Is that R?

It seems like most LGBT stuff get an auto-R stamp, so that requirement might be tough.

Harold and Maude (not lgbt, but certainly about accepting other definitions of love and relationships)

Four Weddings and a Funeral - very het centric, but the homo part will make you cry, and that's more memorable.

I think the Kurt episodes of Glee actually are doing a better job than most of the non-R-rated movies I've seen, given that gayness in and of itself is often a trigger for an R rating. The episode where Kurt comes out to his dad and the episode where Dad tears Finn a new one for calling something "faggy" would take about as long as a short movie and would probably be at least as much fun for the students to watch.
