Bridegroom

"Bridegroom" is an emotional tale of love, loss and inspiration. Shane and Tom are two young men who have developed a strong, devoted relationship that is tragically cut short when Tom passes away unexpectedly in an accident. The documentary style film focuses on Shane’s struggle to deal with Tom’s death as well as with the inequality of marriage, including the ostracization of same sex couples by family and friends, and the challenges presented to those who do not have the legal protections of marriage. The movie tells an important story in a raw and very real way and brings what some view as an uncomfortable topic front and center.

"Bridegroom" offers an unparalleled look into the lives and love of two very committed people but on a larger scale exemplifies the nation’s struggle to take the next step in recognizing that marriage is a universal right for all people, not just a few. It offers a glimpse into the personal lives of two people who encompass every element of what a committed, loving relationship should be and yet are barred from legally marrying due to gender.
