Sigourney Weaver

        Prayers For Bobby
        D R A M A

        2009. US. Colour. PG.

        What on earth is Sigourney Weaver doing in TV movie territory-land? I mean she is one of the great actresses of the last 30 years or so and should be home nowhere near a TV let alone a TV movie. It's fair to say this film doesn't remotely do her justice.

        All the themes here - homosexuality, faith, prejudice and suicide - are handled miserably. In fact they are not handled at all in any way that would be considered satisfactory let alone skillfully. To top it all, Weaver is hopelessly miscast.


        1 star out of 5.
