Wish Me Away

DVD - 2012
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Over a three-year period, filmmakers Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf followed Chely's struggle - some of which was recorded on private video diaries - and her unfolding plan to come out publicly. Using interviews with Chely, her family, key players in Nashville and her management team, the film goes deep into Chely's back story as an established country music star and then forward in verite scenes as she prepares to step into the media glare to reveal that she is gay. Finally, the film chronicles the aftermath of that decision in Nashville, her hometown and within the LGBT community.

Well worth watching, in my opinion. Living a lie for so long takes a huge toll on a person. Chely has come through stronger than she had been before. It was moving to watch what she was going through behind the scenes. Well done, Chely!
