"Normally, I'm not a crier, but this movie made me bawl. It's an incredibly moving story about the aftereffects the Matthew Shepard murder had on the town of Laramie, Wyoming. The film is pieced together very well and the acting is phenomenal. This is a story that needs to be heard, and I suggest every see it at least once."
Review of laramie project
M. Sullivan | Boston , Massachusetts | 11/02/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)
"a good film which exposes the biased opinions of many americans in a small town named laramie. laramie can be viewed as a metaphor for ultra conservative thinking in many parts of america, and indeed, the world and matthew shepard as the object/scapegoat of those prejudices. the motto "live and let live" which is mentioned a few times in the film is a cliche which many people give lip service to but do not actually practice.
it gives the viewer the opportunity to reflect his/her own prejudices and not only does it have to be limited to views and opinions concerning homosexuality, but can be expounded to include all types of haughty and proud thinking and behavior, which, at one time or another, we are all susceptible to."
