Seeking Happily Ever After (2010)
Seeking Happily Ever After is a feature-length documentary that reveals how millions of 30-something single women are busting cultural norms while redefining happy endings for themselves. At this unique moment in history, there are over 6.3 million single women in their 30s in the U.S. For the past several years, the media has painted them as either desperate to get married or so career-driven that they "don't need a man." This documentary will finally allow women to speak up collectively about the realities of what seeking "Happily Ever After" looks like in today's climate. We'll see the pressures they face, the hopes they have, and the ups and downs of giving themselves permission to avoid settling when it comes to picking a spouse. This hip and illuminating film will explore how women are changing finance, entertainment, pop culture and politics--and the way girls and women redefine "Happily Ever After."- Written by Michelle Cove & Kerry David

Seeking Happily Ever After was inspired by a US Census stating there are more single women in their 30s by choice today, than at any other time in history - over 6.3 million single women in the U.S. to put a number on it. We explored this phenomenon by letting these women - who have been painted by the media as either desperate to get married or so career-driven that they "don't need a man" - speak for themselves.- Written by Kerry David
