    The rigidity of most of the rabbis interviewed in the film is balanced by the presence of openly gay Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg, who offers a more liberal, but no less scholarly, interpretation of the Torah.

    The film seems to resonate even for people who aren't Jewish or gay, as there are so many people touched by homosexuality and religion.
  3. Short but emotionally effective movie.
