Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe® winner Sigourney Weaver stars in PRAYERS FOR BOBBY, a captivating and emotional true story about a deeply religious suburban housewife and mother who struggles to accept her son’s homosexuality.  Based on the book by Leroy Aarons, this Lifetime Original Movie premiered to nearly 4 million viewers and is a mainstay in the LGBT community.  And, this December, it debuts on DVD, courtesy of A&E Home Entertainment.

Mary Griffith (Weaver) is a devout Christian who has raised her children with a conservative religious perspective.  When her son, Bobby (Ryan Kelley), reveals that he is gay to his older brother, the entire family dynamic is forever shifted. While Bobby’s father and siblings slowly come to terms with his homosexuality, Mary turns to her steadfast beliefs in an attempt to “cure” her son. Alienated and quickly becoming more detached from the safety of his close-knit family, Bobby’s depression drives him to suicide.  This tragic act causes the grief stricken Mary to question all of her views and she ultimately becomes a champion for gay rights.

Nominated for two 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards, a 2010 Golden Globe Award, a 2010 Screen Actors Guild Award and a 2010 GLAAD Award, PRAYERS FOR BOBBY features extras including Behind-the-Scenes with the Producers; Meet the Stars; Interviews with the Real-Life Mary Griffith, Sigourney Weaver, and other cast members; Road to The GLAAD Awards; Trevor Project PSA starring Daniel Radcliffe and the PFLAG PSA Starring Sigourney Weaver
