The Children's Hour
is worth seeing; it deals with homophobia but doesn't traffic in it.
That's good to know. Mostly we saw Shirley MacLaine being dismissive of how tamely the subject was handled and then the scene in which Audrey Hepburn discovers, out of shot, that MacLaine has hung herself.
Occasionally I'll see a 1960s/70s/80s film for the first time in ages and get smacked upside the head by some virulent homophobic content that had sailed over my head when I was a kid.
There's a percentage of that which in hindsight I thankfully missed due to (see above to
) not actually watching or listening to most of the pop culture of my childhood, but there's a percentage I didn't and visits from this particular axis of the Suck Fairy are no fun.
