I felt cheated by this.
27 February 2018 | by emmadragon-25042See all my reviews

I caught this at Sundance and was initially moved by the sentiments of the film, Dan's openness, and the idea that he could be such a voice for change in an isolated community. However, I then heard the filmmakers speak and even got a chance to talk to one of them myself and learned that this wasn't the movie they set out to make and felt like I was witnessing a fraud.

They intended to make a movie about Dan's depression and fame but ended up guiding the picture to become what I assume they believed would be a film that would sell and gain awards.

I gave this 3 stars because I honestly believe in the message of the movie, but to later learn that it was funded by LiveNation I can only assume it was intended to help promote their band and make a mormon follower seem more likable to the mainstream.

After watching the film, I learned that Dan was now appearing in anti-smoking ads too. I think he is just attempting to retain popularity through social righteousness and anyone and everyone is piggy packing along for the ride. He seems like a good person and I wish him the best, but this film makes me feel cheated.

Love one another, and realize what you're watching when you see this picture.
