Joe Bell review: A film about gay tragedy, but not for gay audiences

Joe Bell (★★☆☆☆) might not be for audiences who love gays, either. A well-meaning attempt to reach folks who can tolerate a gays-love-Cher joke, but don’t want their sons to turn out that way, Joe Bell echoes the important message about bullying that its real-life subject spent months spreading across America, trekking on foot from coast to coast.Joe, a small-town Oregon dad, portrayed by Mark Wahlberg as a walking grimace in a ball cap, is a bully himself, especially to wife Lola (Connie Britton) and sons Jadin (Reid Miller) and Joseph (Maxwell Jenkins).
