Prayers for Bobby
9 pm/ET Lifetime
Sigourney Weaver gives a moving performance in this cable movie as Mary Griffith, a deeply religious mother tortured by grief and guilt over the suicide of her gay son, Bobby. Based on a true story, the cable teleplay follows Griffith's search for answers to make sense of her son's life — and his death — eventually leading her to question her religious beliefs. As understanding comes, so does a new calling that transforms this mother into an outspoken activist for gay rights. —Rhoda Charles
