Imagine Dragons' Mormon front man Dan Reynolds is taking on a new mission to explore how the Church treats its LGBTQ members. With the rising suicide rate amongst teens in the state of Utah, his concern with the Church's policies sends him on an unexpected path for acceptance and change.
Dan Reynolds shot for the moon in sending an email to Hans Zimmer, asking if he would be interested in writing the film's score. After watching the documentary, Zimmer agreed to score the film. See more »
Watched this last night, and it has left me reflecting on how different the world would be if it were full of people like Dan, Asa and their friends, and the families whose stories they are also telling here.
It was far more than I expected, it showed a level of heart and care that I wasn't expecting and certainly created 'the feels' more times than I guessed it was going to.
Its a powerful tale indeed, and the work that Dan and his friends put in here should be applauded widely.
It shows what is wrong with a society that is run by old white men whose views remain firmly placed in the 18th century, but it ultimately shows more profoundly what you can do to overcome ignorance and stupidity. The Mormons are probably must like others who are firmly intrenched in their religious views, but if history shows us anything is it that even the seemingly immovable objects do with time move, and hopefully this will be the case here.
It must surely take only more teen suicides, and more family separations for those who hold control to finally realise that something needs to change, and that their God perhaps puts the value of family, and the value of every person above the once or twice referenced views on sexuality.
This is a must see for any LGBTQ people, but bring your tissues. I am hopeful that it will also be seen by the families, and communities of those affected all over the world by hate, but intolerance and by simple ignorance.
