God's Country

God's Country ★★★★½

Jean, the interviewee who renounced her Catholic faith, who got pregnant at 18 and gave her baby up for adoption knowing she couldn't raise it, who says the men in her small Minnesotan town are overly macho, who is a beautiful straight ally who empathizes with the difficulties of being queer at that time and place, who advocates for liberated female sexuality, is so 1980's woke, and I hope that wherever she is now she is HAPPY and THRIVING.
