Storyline

BRIDEGROOM tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship - a relationship that was cut tragically short by a misstep off the side of a roof. The story of what happened after this accidental death - of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized - is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality like no speech or lecture ever will. On May 7, 2012, the anniversary of Tom's death, after a year of documenting his own grief, Shane decided to make a video tribute to his partner entitled "It Could Happen To You." This film, posted on YouTube, received over 3.2 million hits and inspired over 50 thousand e-mails and comments on YouTube and Facebook. The impact of Shane's original film and the raw nerve it touched, tells us this is an important story that needs to be brought to the world stage. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

This movie was introduced at the Tribeca Film Festival by former President Bill Clinton, a longtime friend of the movie's director, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason. In his introduction, Clinton said: "This is really, on one level, a wonderful, sad, heartbreaking yet exhilarating and life-affirming story. And on another level, it's a story about our nation's struggle to make one more step in forming a more perfect union, for which marriage is both the symbol and substance." See more »

This documentary touched my soul with such depth, that I think it may have changed my life forever!
16 December 2013 | by (New Hampshire, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the most heart-felt, touching, and tragic things that I have ever witnessed. I felt every emotion within Shane and I could not help but cry hysterically at several parts. This movie, saddening yet unexplainable beauty, should be viewed by everyone. This couple is such an inspiration to me, and they really made me see what is important in my life. The love that I felt between these partners, is something that I could only imagine holding in my hands. R.I.P. Tom. I love you both deeply, and I pray that Shane continues to stay strong and carry on with his message. You two are such an inspiration to me and this documentary is amazing. The strength that Shane holds is something that I can only dream of. God bless both of you and your partnership, I only wish that all of your life goals/dreams could have been made reality before he passed. You were a beautiful pair of soul-mates <3. Hold Tom in your heart forever Shane, and I hope that one day you two can reunite. LGBT rights should be everywhere, and same-sex rights should be given to EVERY human being. You, Me, every person that is out there; should be given the right to love openly and freely. Love is love and nobody should be deprived of that. SAME SEX MARRIAGE NEEDS TO BE LEGALIZED EVERYWHERE. Watch this movie and you will forever think the same. My love goes out to everyone struggling with rights, and to anyone that has been denied the privilege to love freely. I recommend this documentary to all, just prepare for the tears.
