Not brilliant acting, but it must have been a hard movie to make. This appears to be the story of one of the less evil conversion therapy programs--at least we didn't see electroshock, or other physical torture. This was based on psychological torture and humiliation. There are hints, however, that things get much much worse once parents abandon their children to the center. It is difficult for young people today to grasp what happened to Gay people in the 50s and 60s, so this is a good introduction to more recent Gay history. The one big issue I had is that--it seems like I should as "as always" to this sentence--Gay and pedophile are conflated in one of the characters.
