Prayers for Bobby DVD Review and Giveaway

Yesterday I had the good fortune to interview Sigourney Weaver. But the best part (as if interviewing Sigourney Weaver wasn't the best part) was that the topic of the interview was about something much more important than entertainment. Her Lifetime movie, Prayers for Bobby, which is now out on DVD, is a heartbreaking movie that teaches parents the importance of accepting their children for who they are.

Based on the bestselling book by Leroy Aarons, Sigourney Weaver, in her first made-for-TV movie and one of her finest roles ever, plays Mary Griffith, a deeply religious mother who cannot accept her teenage son's homosexuality and must then deal with the consequences.. She then makes the journey from devastating grief to becoming a champion of gay rights. The acting is superb. Prayers for Bobby is an extremely powerful must-see movie.

The DVD for Prayers for Bobby offers many extras that will help viewers learn more about the movie and gay rights:
  • Interviews with the Real-Life Mary Griffith, Sigourney Weaver, and other cast members
  • Behind-the-Scenes with the Producers
  • Meet the Stars
  • Road to The GLAAD Awards
  • Trevor Project PSA starring Daniel Radcliffe - The Trevor Project is an organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention among LGBTQ youth.
  • PFLAG PSA Starring Sigourney Weaver - PFLAG is an organization for parents, families and friends of Lesbians and Gays.

Please go to Sigourney Weaver interview on Prayers for Bobby and DVD Giveway to read about my interview with Signourney and the detail of the DVD giveaway!
