Tru Loved (2008) is an independent feature film.



The title character, Tru (Najarra Townsend), moves from San Francisco with her two lesbian mothers to a conservative suburb in Southern California. She struggles to fit in at her new high school, but finds that difficult. Her only friend is a closeted football player who is threatened by Tru and other students forming a Gay Straight Alliance.


The film premiered at the Sedona Film Festival on 28 February 2008 and at the Frameline Film Festival on 21 June 2008. The film went into limited national release on 17 October 2008. The film won 14 awards at six film festivals.

Film critic Roger Ebert caused a controversy when his published review of the film revealed that he stopped watching after only eight minutes. He has since watched and reviewed the entire film and promised to never review a film he has not seen "in its entirety. Never. Ever."[1]
