Chely Wright: Wish Me Away 2012 Movie Full HD Video Free Download

 What it lacks in artfulness, Wish Me Away makes up for in emotive force. Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf's documentary about singer Chely Wright, the first country star to come out as gay, jumps somewhat clumsily around to fill in the gaps in its subject's backstory and trace the buildup to her announcement, employing interviews with Wright and her associates and offering up excerpts from the singer's video diary in which Wright, looking exhausted from worry, confesses her fears about her ability to go through outing herself. The film tells a forceful personal story, and it also doubles as a terrifying look at the entrenched "family values" culture that not only pervades much of the Bible Belt, but also makes the idea of an out country singer unthinkable.

Chely Wright: Wish Me Away is the story of Chely Wright, the first country music star to come out as gay. Over three years, the filmmakers were given extraordinary access to Chely's struggle and her unfolding plan to come out publicly. Using interviews with Chely, her family, her pastor, and key players in Nashville interwoven with Chely's intimate private video diaries, the film goes deep into her back story as an established country music star and then forward as she steps into the national spotlight to reveal her secret. Chronicling the aftermath in her hometown of Nashville and within the larger LGBT community, Wish Me Away reveals both the devastation of her own internalized homophobia and the transformational power of living an authentic life.
