Storyline

Lorre and Gayle were heartbroken when they learned their two great-aunts - sisters who'd lived together their entire 80+ years - were on the verge of losing their 1850's home because it was too big a burden to care for anymore. "Having to leave your home just because you're older?" Lorre asks. "After living there 60 years?" Gayle adds. "Unfair," they agree. So they did something about it. Lorre and Gayle broke their apartment rental lease and moved in with a very grateful Gertrude and Germaine, to be financial, emotional and physical caregivers for their elderly aunts. "We were the Golden Girls for a while there, and we still call ourselves that, even though we lost Auntie Gert last year," Lorre adds. "But Auntie Germaine is still feisty and we do for her because that's what we've both been taught. You take care of family."

A very moving film
29 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this film. The filmmakers chose to approach the gay marriage issue from a very personal perspective, documenting the difficulties facing a lesbian couple who applied for a marriage license, as they endured a year of political maneuvering and media hype that directly impacted their lives. It was extremely touching, and I found myself in tears at the end. Other documentaries on the subject might present the facts more clearly (although this did a wonderful job of it), but would not likely make me feel as deeply. Additionally, the filmmakers made every attempt to present both sides of the argument fairly, and although their bias was clear, nobody came across as the villain.
