I am there with those who found this movie to have an impact on them.
I am 31 and when that book was published I was a teenager, my closest friend was gay, we were fans of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the King's Court theater and, unfortunately, I was being sexually abused by my mother.
It's a difficult movie for me to watch; it hits really close to the chest.
Another movie that affected me in a similar fashion was, "Shame." The movie deals with the difficult obsessions and addictions that many of us have into adulthood in an attempt to snuff out the horrible feelings that come with accepting what had happened to us in the past.
