Storyline

A slice of life of a young, professional married couple with their darling baby turns a sharp, dark corner when the pair are arrested and charged with several counts of fraud. The reason: Terry and Samantha Succi aren't the man and woman that they purported to be... Terry and Samantha married under false pretenses, ignoring state law that discriminates against homosexual partners and prohibits them from receiving the same rights and benefits as their straight counterparts. Now the Governor, in an effort to protect his politically necessary anti-gay marriage bill, secretly arranges for a quick slap-on-the wrist plea offer that will ensure both a guilty plea and a fast end to the case. Terry and Samantha, though, decide to fight the fight and enlist the unlikely representation of self-absorbed, but respected attorney John DeMine. What ensues is a massive media covered courtroom battle, with equally divided views...and equally plotted acts of legal - and illegal - warfare. After a ... Written by Kenneth Del Vecchio

Surprising comic twists make for an entertaining film
17 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was going to be a melodramatic, TV movie of the week look at the issue of gay marriage. But while that's where it started,it takes some unexpected turns with poison sandwiches, flamboyant assassins, and mysterious villains who may actually be heroes. The sudden twists in tone - from heartfelt moral arguments to bizarre Nazi shakedowns - keep you always guessing as to where this unique film is going. It's anchored by two strong performances from Candice Holdorf and Elissa Goldstein, as Terry and Samantha Succi the two lovers who aren't the man and woman that they claim to be. Holdorf finds a smoldering ambiguity in Terri - how much of her protest becomes a part of who she is? If you live in a lie long enough, does it eventually become the truth? Against these dramatic questions, we have a delightfully cartoonish Governor, a comically cocky attorney John DeMine and his seemingly vapid wife, whose crusade ends up being equal parts heartfelt and hilarious. A truly unusual and engaging film...and just who is the Man in White?
