Many ignorant people have labled this movie "The Gay Cowboy movie", But they're all wrong
I watched this movie with a friend of mine, (We are both Heterosexual mind you) and we thought it was going to be terrible, but after the first couple minutes, it was the Cinementography that captivated us.
The Scenes are not explicit at all, and I think any kid who has had sexual education or who has been taught to be tolerant of people with different sexual preferences should see this movie.
However, the movie has one sex scene that implies the fact that two men are having sex, but it isn't nasty at all. There are also a few other sex scenes (Yes both Homo, and Hetero) That you can't really see that much. There is also nudity, some bare breasts, but it's mostly naked men. But like I said, they are blurred so you really can't see any genitals. There are a couple bad words, but they are only used at appropriate moments (Like in anger, or excitement) And the violence level is very mild, a few punches were thrown, some people bled from barfights, but there is a scene where a character dies by being beaten to death. (although you only see glimpses of it) There is also many situations of Distrust (ex. The two men don't see each other, so they get married, but one mans wife becomes suspiscious) And also many of the characters drink (But that is not the reason they fell the two men fell in love mind you)
This movie has opened my eyes to see all the slander that homosexuals have had to put up with, and they still have to put up with it now.
But if you take your kid to watch this movie, it will definetly change his/her view on homosexuals, so they can see them as people, not "Queers"
The Passion in this movie can make almost anyone cry.
So before you judge this movie because it has an affair between two men, you should see it with a black, and white view. (Meaning that you see everyone as equal)
Good acting, Wonderful scenery, great message, one of the best romance stories ever.
