    The inspiring story of Chely Wright, the first major country singer to come out as gay. Her decision was a brave one since the world of C&W music is notoriously homophobic.

    This scrappy-slick confessional is a fascinating study in dualities.

    This sympathetic documentary chronicles her decision to come out, which required a battle plan as extensive as the ones applied to the rest of her career.

    While it's fascinating to observe the workings of the mammoth apparatus grafted onto an intensely personal decision, the movie's heart is the moments that take place in private (meaning, in this case, in front of only one camera).

    The film is ultimately too concerned with courting the singer's fans to deliver anything more than a theatrical release of a very special episode of VH1's Behind the Music.

    What it lacks in artfulness, Wish Me Away makes up for in emotive force.

    Much like the image of Wright presented by the movie itself, Wish Me Away is graceful, sincere and heartfelt.
