I saw this when it played at a local film festival. I found it quite interesting, since I'm from California but was out of the country for the entire 2008 election season and missed most of the coverage.
And, as a former Mormon, I will say that it was pretty darn accurate in its portrayal of the Mormon view of homosexuality. The Mormon viewpoint thoroughly upholds the idea that there's one "right and normal" way to be, which is something that's pretty clearly the antithesis of what we'd like society to be (or at least what I'd like it to be, which is basically why I left the church).
Anyway, it's pretty well done. I'd recommend seeing it.
