Storyline

Joe Marshall is the perfect father and husband and is respected and admired in his community. But Joe is living a lie that he has tried to keep suppressed throughout his marriage. It is only when Elaine catches her husband in bed with his lover that Joe's lie rips through the facade. Joe's lover is a young man. This film is an honest, moving account of a woman struggling to cope with the discovery that her husband and father of her two children, the man that she has worked with side by side, is gay. The movie sees all four members of the family struggle to integrate this new complication into their family life. Written by Keith Rogers

Nine-tenths believable
29 December 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The perfect family--Mom, Dad, teenage daughter and son--is thrown into absolute turmoil when Dad is discovered to be a closeted gay with a male lover. The unanimous hysterical reaction of wife and kids to his carefully guarded secret is all too believable. One could question his judgement in marrying and raising a family, but not his fear of the consequence of discovery (which probably drove him into marriage in the first place). In about nine-tenths of this film, knee-jerk responses, closed minds, and programmed thinking reign. Given this, the last few scenes stretch credulity to a cinematic breaking point.
