A cute and thought provoking short
4 December 2007 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

This is a cute short that takes us through the process of creating a wedding, only the traditional gender roles are reversed. Jared Hillman makes an appealing presence as the groom, excited about his upcoming big day. Real life couple Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker are a treat to watch as his parents. The production values are very strong for a short film.

The whole story tests our notions of gender identity in a clever and thought provoking manner.

(The film can be seen for free on Logo's web site, and no registration or log in is required, so check it out.)
