Funnier than "Eating Out"
14 October 2005 | by oberkornSee all my reviews

I also attended the North Carolina Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and I loved this cinematic gem. Matrimonium is a smartly written/improvised mocumentary satirizing reality TV while informing the current gay marriage debate in this country. It was thrilling to watch this comedy with an extremely supportive audience who got it. I, like most of the crowd, laughed from the beginning to the end.

Matrimonium is one of those few films that gets the formula right. The right script, the right pace, and the right cast, with a pitch perfect performance by Devon Green as "Dre" the vacuous TV show hostess.

Thank god for film festivals that prioritizes substance over style and creativity over cliché providing a platform for this kind of quality independent film.
