The Seminarian 2010
Unrated | 1h 41min | Drama, Romance | August 2010 (USA)
A closeted student at a conservative theological seminary, struggles to come to terms with his nurtured beliefs and coming out to himself, his friends, and his only surviving family member. At this low point mentally and emotionally, Ryan ends up in a troubled online relationship which leads him to question everything he has known about God and Love.
This movie may not be for everyone. It isn’t fast past and there are a lot of long shots and sequences. The acting it about what I would expect from an Independent film. I thought the story was good and interesting as I know a couple of people who went to Seminary School (I guess that’s how you say that). I really enjoyed Mark Cirillo in this (he is adorable I don’t care what anyone says) and I thought he did a good job and was a very likable character. I liked the idea of following one person on their personal journey that’s what made it relatable and enjoyable to me. It’s a shame that it is so poorly rated because they really did do a good job.
