ONE MAN. TWO LIVES.
After suffering panic attacks that he initially mistakes for a heart condition, gay activist Michael Glatze (James Franco) finds God and starts turning his back on his sexuality. The real-life story of a man who chose the Christian right over his old life is a sad portrait of a man who’s desperately trying to turn himself straight. Franco is at the center of the film and believable throughout. However, the movie as a whole turns into a fairly transparent and predictable drama, much like the director’s gay-porn chronicle King Cobra (2016).
