The new film “Forgive Us” is an allegory of coming home as a member of the LGBTQ community.  In this sociological thriller from writers Jono Mitchell and D.W. Hodges, this is a Christmas movie with a sinister twist.  Palm Desert actor Sandy Reed holds the film from start to finish.  Sadly, he passed away in a pedestrian accident last year but his spirit lives on in “Forgive Us.”

I spoke with producer Alex Woodruff about the making of the film and the brilliance of Sanford “Sandy” Reed in the movie.

“Forgive Us” is in competition for Best LGBT+ Short and Best Midnight Short.  Click here for details.
