**1/2 Chely Wright: Wish Me Away Two years ago, Chely Wright became the first commercial country artist to openly identify as gay. This documentary makes it clear just how grueling and groundbreaking her decision was. Speaking specifically to Wright’s experience, it’s also a broad examination of why country music is so skittish about homosexuality. You’d think a genre so consumed with matters of the heart would embrace a performer who’s staying true to hers. (96 min., unrated) (James Reed)
