Anchored by the palpable chemistry between its two stars, Sarah Wharton and Nicole Pursell, this smart, spirited drama jumps forward and back in time to artfully interweave fiction and documentary. Sarah, a nonfiction filmmaker, sets out to interview same-sex couples hoping to understand her own ambivalence about marriage.
