Storyline

Things are complicated for Serena: she's to be maid of honor this weekend for a high-school friend she made love to on prom night; her partner of five years, Doniel, wants to stay home and have a quick fling with another woman; and, the bride wouldn't mind a pre-nuptial tryst with Serena. She prevails upon Doniel to come with her, and then, surrounded by wedding talk about lifelong commitment and dismissive remarks about lesbians by straight friends, she examines her relationship with Doniel. Could they commit to more than their present semi-fidelity? What might Doniel say? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Transforms the standing of 'lesbian art' from oxymoron to viable category.
16 March 2001 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

I knew we could do it. Finally, a woman has written and directed a story with major lesbian characters who are sympathetic, compelling and fully realized without devolving into flat stereotypes. Maid of Honor's script sets a modern lesbian couple within the dominant culture, acknowledging the double standard definitions of fidelity and commitment minus the falsetto, teaching tone of far too many film stories (e.g. the final episodes of "Ellen"). Love relationships--straight, gay or otherwise--are complicated by infidelities of all sorts and perhaps the honest response is closer to Doniel's: admit the human condition and proceed with principled non-monogamy. Regardless of the answer, Maid of Honor, like all good stories, enrolled us in the story and left us thinking about its consequences for days. Outstanding work all the way around: directing, casting, script.. each a job well done!

Aside to the director: To modify an old Irish blessing... "May the best of your past be the worst of our film-going future!" Thanks for the raising the bar.
