Uprooted from her comfortable San Francisco home and transplanted to a generic Southern California suburb by her two well-meaning moms, open-minded high-school sophomore Tru despairs at being surrounded by close-minded football players and air-headed Paris Hilton wannabes until she gets the idea to combat small-town intolerance by co-founding a local chapter of the Gay-Straight Alliance.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The world is not quite as nicely rainbow-hued as the film wishes it were at the end, but, if nothing else, Tru Loved makes us hope all the more that it can be one day."
‑ David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle
"Content, bolstered by some solid performances, triumphs over form: The film is engaging, timely and courageous."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The movie is crummy on several levels, yet its desire to help make the world more loving and tolerant is so pure-hearted that criticizing it seems almost mean-spirited."
‑ Stan Hall, Oregonian
"The film surely means well with enormous messages of tolerance and self-esteem, but when Loved digs in with broad caricatures of homophobia and all-purpose intolerance, the movie can be a supreme chore to sit through."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"This plodding plea for tolerance would barely pass muster as an after-school special."
‑ Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter
"Worthless drivel for the gay-lesbian market."
‑ , Chicago Reader
"Wade's extremely low budget film is hampered by badly recorded dialogue and a script that tries to cram too many issues and characters in."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"Every word of dialogue is both written and delivered with the most precious deliberateness and instructive tone."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"Too bad it's not better, because in many ways it's a coming-out movie with a difference."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"Tru Loved is worth a look for the supporting cast alone."
‑ Maureen M. Hart, Chicago Tribune
"There isn't really much that differentiates Tru Loved from any other low-budget indie film. It isn't unique visually and a lot of the acting is what, at best, could be called amateur."
‑ Paula Nechak, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"All that's missing from this Edenic scenario is Cyndi Lauper belting "Living High and Mighty.""
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
