Multi-layered, gripping, gritty and very realistic. Whether gay or not, a situation faced by many educators in today's trigger-reactive society where "The accusation is all that matters." Well-acted and filmed.

... Should have read the "Item Details" before taking it out... Sight unseen, I thought it was a satirical take-off on Tiger Woods...

I thought this movie was very entertaining and true to life.

Finally, an American movie about gay people that is well-written (by the "can you hear me now?" guy) and well-observed by the director and ensemble cast. This film reminds me of "An Early Frost" which also featured a top-rate cast dealing with a homosexual theme. This one plays like a movie-of-the-week, but with such a good script and cast, it's more like a Hallmark Hall of Fame. The story is a mirror-image of the locker-room shenanigans going on at Penn State and Syracuse as well as every Catholic diocese throughout the world. This time out it is the trusted, older person who is the victim of the innocent young kid. It's not an insult to compare this indie film to a made-for-TV-movie since all the best adult subjects are now being played-out on television and not on American movie screens. Its no surprize that Hollywood is once-again all abuzz about 3-D; the last time they got so heated about gimmicks like 3-D, television was starting to dominate American living rooms, circa 1955. To fully appreciate the script for "The Green" check-out the scene in the kitchen between "friends." And then watch it again. Great writing, great acting. Great gay movie. In 1-D only.
