Watch: Prayers for Bobby 2009 123movies, Full Movie Online – In “Prayers for Bobby,” Mary Griffith (Sigourney Weaver) is a devout Christian who raises her children with the conservative teachings of the Presbyterian Church. However, when her son Bobby (Ryan Kelley) 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 (Henry Czerny) 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is asked of him, but through it all, the church’s apparent disapproval of homosexuality causes him to grow increasingly withdrawn and depressed.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..
Plot: Bobby Griffith was his mother’s favorite son, the perfect all-American boy growing up under deeply religious influences in Walnut Creek, California. Bobby was also gay. Struggling with a conflict no one knew of, much less understood, Bobby finally came out to his family.

A movie for anyone who has felt misunderstood or alone.
Have you ever felt like you did not fit in? Have you ever had your parents not accept something about you? If you think you can not get this movie or understand and you are straight, think again. I am straight, but this film reminded me of all the times in my life I did not feel wanted or as though I fit in. I’ve spent the last year of my life fighting for the one place on the planet I felt like I belonged, and the one industry I felt I fit into. Have you ever had to fight to be? Have you ever had to stand up for something you believe in? Have you ever thought you were right about a belief and then discovered how wrong you were? Have you ever judged someone by ignorant standards, only to realize you were wrong? Are you part of a minority that has been persecuted and degraded? If any of this applies to you, see this film. It is more than just a movie about homosexuality. It is a film about people, family, love, friendship, and understanding. And if you are someone who thinks that homosexuals are evil, I dare you to watch this film.

Good TV Movie
Having watched this film I scored it 6/10, then after reading the bulk of other comments I wondered if I had been a little mean. I am really not sure. Being neither gay nor a bible-basher…maybe I didn’t fully relate? To be honest I think the real problem is that I am not American. (Or perhaps it was set in the ’80’s and *surely* attitudes have changed?) There just seemed to be too many inconsistencies in the story that bothered me. Bobby has a loving family apart from his fanatical mother and vaguely ambivalent father. He has found happiness with a partner in Portland yet still his mother’s words from his childhood drive him to suicide? His mother, supposedly a Christian fanatic who takes the bible literally doesn’t know many key verses? Acting was very good, Ms. Weaver is as ever engrossing but though a good watch I just can’t get that gushing about this film that so many others have. I’ll stick with 6/10, 6.5 if I could.
