The Laramie Project
I know I'm a little late to the party on this one, but in a discussion with my friend S about Brokeback Mountain, she said "you really should see The Laramie Project". What a wonderful film. Violence against gays is often justified. This film shows how this was not allowed in the case of the senseless beating death of Matthew Shepard in 1998. I'm glad to have seen this dramatic reenactment of the events and the people affected by this awful hate crime. A film well worth seeing.
