Life After Ex is a new romantic comedy about searching for love after a gay divorce. Set in the months before the Supreme Court ruled to legalize same sex marriage nation-wide, Dylan Holm must put his life back together after his partner leaves him. However, Dylan is unable to file for a divorce, even though he and his partner were legally married in Iowa, because the state of Nebraska never recognized their marriage. Because of this, Dylan must move to Council Bluffs, Iowa, for a year to establish residency so he can file for divorce there. As Dylan begins to put his life back together and finds a new boyfriend, the Supreme Court rules to make same sex marriage legal all across the U.S.A. Now, Dylan is free to file for a gay divorce and remarry, but things aren't what they seem, and once the truth is revealed, Dylan is finally able to find happiness and true love at last. Written by F. Coppola

User Reviews

big budget films aren't always best
10 February 2018 | by itsoradSee all my reviews

Imagine for a moment trying to end your marriage when it's not even legal in every State, and attempting to rebuild your life in the process. This Nebraska Independent film tackles this issue in a most entertaining, albeit real, way. It's a story with heart, portrayed by some excellent local actors, cinematography and scene concepts. Hollywood does not have the corner on the market, there is amazing talent everywhere. I saw "Life After Ex "at the Prairie Lights Film Festival in Grand Island, Ne.
