Same Difference: A Good One #40
A scatter-shot short documentary feature about the complexities of family, especially if those families have gay parents. The interviews with the younger children of these families are often humorous and bittersweet, but the film more often than not has a "been-there-done-that" feel, particularly with the insertion of historical stock footage for levity. If shown without these moments, it could be a very powerful film, and could be particularly enlightening to those who do not know gay people and have no concept of their need to marry and create families of their own. Now showing at the Cleveland International Film Festival.
