“ SAFE is a powerful piece about the multi-generational pervasiveness of homophobia told from the point of view of a woman whose past mistakes with a gay friend come back to haunt her decades later when she encounters similar prejudices and circumstances. The narrative presents a gripping puzzle that slowly reveals itself as the weight of her memories and regrets bear down on her. Eternally topical yet intimately personal, SAFE reminds us that bigotry and abuse can still hide within the most outwardly friendly people. The graveyard confrontation between two mothers is extraordinary.
