Grab the tissues because this one is a real tearjerker.
Filmmaker Terry Rayment and cinematographer Kate Arizmendi have teamed up with Kodak to present “Understanding,” a emotional three minute film that tells the story of a gay teenager and his father, who struggles to accept his son’s sexuality. The film, which is shot on 35 mm, features very little dialogue but still manages to pack a serious emotional punch. And, yes, it has a happy ending.
Check it out below:
Great ending. Daddy in a wheelchair was perhaps a step to far in my opinion.
Would have been nice to see more of the kissing in the bedroom scene.
okay, commercial all that issues but the thing gave me hope for homely guys and goose bumps with a hot dad learning how to love chair or not.
We’ve seen this film or a variation on it 9000 times already.
With the bigots and lowlifes running the country for the next four years…this gave hope.
@Mike999: very true.
the fastttic the mega curuioss they is !!!! good reallity !!!
I remember my dad, when i introduce my first bf to him…he stand there then look at me and my bf. then open his arms gave me a hug of acceptance with pure love… he may rest in peace!
Why risk sneaking a kiss when your whole family is at home and you don’t have a lock on your door and a younger nosy sibling?
That brings hope.
Dammit, I was told to be ready with the Kleenex and I thought I was. Nope, here come the waterworks!
God damn it I am usually such a hard ass and don’t really react to these tear-jerker promotions but this ad managed to evoke a reaction out of me. Well done.
Great, now I’ll be bawling for the rest of the night! Well done.
Oh the power of a great presentation.

So sweet. Well done, Kodak.
Hopefully we’ll get to see movies like this in a month. Gonna be a rough next 4 years.
just a dream…I would have been either with a four kids and a dramatic life , or been killed and burried deep in a tomb if my father wouldn’t have died before me….,Still a struggle with a very hostile society and world…a meaningless life in a very difficult family and society….being Gay is a real burden…
Sweet! A very badly needed hope for gay community.
The times we live in define our progress and if we take 3 steps forward and one step backward, the glass is half-full.
BTW, The Dad, with or without the wheelchair, is hoter than hot, he’s the sexiest one in the film, and looking like that, he’s had to have had at least a blowjob or two in his life……so far!
Think of the possibilities.
What a beautiful film.
My holidays have been marred by the fact that I am struggling with the idea of coming out to my own Dad. I am 49 years old, and I am still scared to do so. He’s not one for talking and I know he loves me.
But I am still wondering if I should bother telling him at all.
