The incredible true-life story of Michael Glatze (James Franco), a high profile queer youth activist who created a national controversy when he claimed to no longer be gay and became a straight Christian pastor. The film follows Michael from his life in San Francisco with his boyfriend Bennett (the openly gay actor Zachary Quinto), where he pursues political activism and a journalistic career at the gay youth-oriented XY Magazine, to his days of personal self-discovery. After a traumatic scare, Michael is plagued by doubt and paranoia, and begins a religious reawakening. Michael renounces his gay lifestyle, rejects his friends, and endeavors to find his ''true self''. He explores Buddhism and Mormonism, yet ultimately lands at a Christian bible school in rural Wyoming where he meets his girlfriend, Rebekah (Emma Roberts), and becomes the pastor of his own church.
This revealing film captures one man's haunting journey through modern concepts of love, denial and personal redemption. While challenging in its subject matter, it is nonetheless a film that bears testimony to the myriad ways that sexuality is (or is not) addressed. It is also fascinating for being the first feature directed by Justin Kelly, whose latest film is ''King Cobra'', based on the true-life murder story involving gay porn star Brent Corrigan, and also starring James Franco, but this time as a gay pornographer.
