Out at the Movies

Wish Me Away tells the story of Chely Wright, the first country music star to come out
as gay. After a lifetime of hiding, she shatters cultural and religious stereotypes
within Nashville, her conservative heartland family, and most importantly, herself. Over a
three-year period, the filmmakers were given extraordinary access to Chely's struggle and
her unfolding plan to come out publicly. Using interviews with Chely, her family, key players
in Nashville and her management team, and 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
prepares to step into the national media glare to reveal that she is gay. Chronicling the
aftermath of that decision in her hometown of Nashville and within the larger LGBT
community, Wish Me Away reveals both the devastation of her own internalized
homophobia  which led to Chely putting a gun in her mouth  and the transformational
power of living an authentic life. It shows the struggles of being a Christian who happens
to be gay. Finally, performing before an LGBT audience of over 100,000, with the Capitol
Building blazing behind her, we feel both the excitement and uncertainty of the future that
awaits her. USA, 2010, 120 min., Blu-Ray
