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

A question; with humor and curiosity.
29 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Altho it has an unexpected twist at the end that changes the motivations of the characters in a way that may or may not be believable, this movie has a heart of gold for the issue it addresses; Gay marriage. The characters range from very serious and emotional, like the two main characters Terry and Samantha Succi (Played by Candice Holdorf and Elissa Goldstein respectively) to quite comical and very out of the range of plausibility. The plot begins quite dangerously real, and eventually steps outside of probability to a very idealistic reality with such humor and tenderness that one can't help but cheer for such an improbable ending. While the movie may not have proceeded in a very conventional way; the question IS a very real one, and so it heartens the soul in preparation to ask the question again, louder, and see what the very real answer might be.
