Lovely Family Film for ALL Families
9 February 2014 | by melodybrown74See all my reviews

I was thrilled to hear there would be a full-length feature to continue the story of Groom's Cake, which was a lovely short film I saw at Atlanta Out On Film. Birthday Cake picks up with Steven and Dan approximately one year after they receive their adopted baby, Sam, and leading up to Sam's first birthday party.

It's shot in a mockumentary style similar to the first film, and I'm so glad there was time to get to know the characters a bit more this time around. We learn a lot about the history of the couple, and get a peek into the complex emotions and family dynamics surrounding their marriage and foray into parenthood. It's a sometimes hilarious, gritty, touching, sad, and joyous look into the world of a same-sex family...which is sadly underrepresented in the movie world today.
