The ring is, indeed, the thing
21 October 2017 | by Red-125See all my reviews

The Ring Thing (2017) was directed by William Sullivan. It's an interesting lesbian love story about two successful, ambitious women. Sarah, played by Sarah Wharton is in love with Nicole, portrayed by Kristen Jennings. and Nicole is in love with her.

The women have a good chemistry, but Kristen is ready for marriage, and Sarah isn't. The movie begins with Sarah showing Kristen a ring, and Kristen thinking that Sarah is proposing. Of course, we know she's not proposing, but we understand why Kristen would think it's a proposal.

Naturally, there's much discussion about whether or not to marry, and more discussion about where to work and what work to do. The women are not drifting from dead-end job to dead-end job. They are professionals, and they have roots. That doesn't make things easy.

The movie is carried along on the shoulders of the two leads, although the supporting cast does a great job as well. It's hard to know whether Sarah or Kristen is "right," or even if there is a "right." It's definitely worth seeing to find out the answers.

We saw the film at Rochester's excellent Little Theatre. It was shown as part of the great ImageOut--Rochester's LGBT Film Festival. This screening was a New York State Premiere. (It's very impressive when a movie is shown in Rochester before it's shown in NYC.)

The film will work on a small screen. It's definitely worth seeking out and watching.
