Germany released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), German ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Anamorphic Widescreen, Interactive Menu, Photo Gallery, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: In 'Prayers for Bobby,' Mary Griffith is a devout Christian who raises her children with the conservative teachings of the Presbyterian Church. However, when her son Bobby confides to his older brother he may be gay, life changes for the entire family after Mary learns about his secret. While Bobby's father and siblings slowly come to terms with his homosexuality, Mary believes God can cure him of what she considers his 'sin' and persuades Bobby to pray harder and seek solace in church activities in hopes of changing him. Desperate for his mother's approval, Bobby does what is asked of him, but through it all, the church's apparent disapproval of homosexuality causes him to grow increasingly withdrawn and depressed. Guilty over the pain he is causing Mary, Bobby moves away, yet hopes that some day his mother will accept him. His subsequent depression and self-loathing intensifies as he blames himself for not being the 'perfect' son and is driven to suicide. Faced with their tragedy, Mary begins to question her faith when she receives no answers from her pastor concerning her devastating loss. Through her long and emotional journey, Mary slowly reaches out to the gay community and discovers unexpected support from a very unlikely source. The film is based on the 1995 Leroy Aarons book of the same name. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Emmy Awards, Golden Globes, ...Prayers for Bobby

The story takes a tragic turn when Bobby ends his life.
His familymembers are devestated and the mother tries to understand why her son killed himself. She meets a priest in a church that is friendly and open to all people, no matter their sexual orientation and she understands how wrong she has been all the time. She learns more and more about what homosexuality is about, and finally she and the family takes part in i Gay Pride- parade to show their support to LGBT-people.
I loved the movie and the actors were great! The Movie is based on a true story.
Just be aware this disc comes from French sources and as such defaults to terrible French language dubbing. The original English dialogue can be selected from the menu however French subtitles are then present and can't be de-selected.
