Beautiful urbanites steam up the screen in this ensemble family drama about a complicated love triangle from filmmaker Glenn Gaylord. To stay in New York City, gay Brit Jack (David W. Ross) convinces his best friend Ali (Jamie Lynn-Sigler, “The Sopranos”) to marry him. Things get messy when he falls for a sexy Spanish architect while his commitment to his brother’s widow (Alicia Witt) and his young niece complicates his decision either to stay or to follow his lover.
I DO cleverly examines the complications of immigration issues in the absence of marriage equality for LGBT people on a Federal level, while also presenting a nuanced adult drama that resonates deeply amidst the current fight for U.S. marriage equality.
