It is refreshing to discover a little film that deals with important issues and respects those issues to the point of avoiding cliché and parody. I DO was written, produced and stars the very talented (and handsome and hunky) David W. Ross who has composed a story that deals with the now newsworthy attention on Proposition 8, the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA), immigration issues, and the spectrum of the gay community, and from these poignant issues he delivers a touching, humorous, tart, and ultimately deeply moving film.

Jack Edwards (David W. Ross) was born in England but came to America to study Photography and is successful in his art but lacks a significant other: we get the message that he has transient affairs with men who disappoint him. We meet Jack in a restaurant where he is joining his brother Peter (Grant Bowler) and his wife Mya (Alicia Witt) to hear that Mya is expecting. The happy trio leaves the restaurant and in hailing a cab, Jack drops his wallet and when Peter attempts to find it Peter is killed by an oncoming car. Devastated, Jack assumes Peter's role with Mya and when her daughter Tara (Jessica Tyler Brown) is born, Uncle Jack helps Mya raise her (Mya is in Nursing School and needs supportive assistance). The relationship is warm and each of the three enjoys each other's presence - young Tara is utterly accepting of Uncle Jack's being gay - a fine lesson for all adults...

Jack is notified that his Visa is expiring and he must return to England unless he can find a way to attain a Green Card. A very fine councilor, Gloria (Patricia Belcher) is strict and warns Jack that unless he finds a way to stay he will be deported.

What I loved about this film is the unusual plot twist. One really doesn't know where the film is going.

In the film, a gay British man and his straight brother have moved to New York. The straight brother and his wife became pregnant, but then the husband is suddenly killed in a car accident. 7 years later, the gay uncle has been serving as the male parental figure for his niece and basically completely supports his single mother windowed sister-in-law. One day, gay uncle's citizenship visa is denied and unless he gets married to a lady, he has to move back to the UK. He asks his lesbian friend to marry him, she agrees, and it gets messier from here on in when gay uncle meets steamy, dreamy, stable Spanish hunk.

It's a great film about loyalty, heartbreak and tough choices.

David W. Ross certainly gets the job done. We come to be on his side and we sympathize. Maurice Compte becomes this dark, Spanish, good guy hunk who any romantic sap can't help but love. He's a very convincing actor. Delightful as always, Jamie-Lynn Sigler does an admirable job as the conflicted best-friend. But the stand-out actor in the film is Alicia Witt. She is a refined, consummate actress who really raised the bar of acting in the film.

I can't say I blown away by the excellent writing, but it's easily overlooked in the light of a powerful, feel-good, important film. I absolutely recommend it.

Several reviews criticize the lead character for not making decisions. But we all know that we learn from our experiences in life and that we all learn differently. So the fact that the lead character doesn't get it right all the time is very realistic. The fact that he takes time to decide is realistic as well. Not everyone can jump on a dime. I enjoyed watching him grow from the carefree, casual sex lifestyle to something with meaning. I thought this film demonstrates the difficulties that still exist even as gay marriage is legalized in some states.

Dr. Grady Harp's review is going to shadow mine; however, I am still adamant in sharing my thoughts and experiences from absorbing in the movie. The movie hit a homerum for me, because Mr. David Ross' character is a photographer and working in the photography industry as I do. I thought, "Hey! That could be me in a few years!" I am 32 at present and need to procure a boyfriend to propose to and settle down. Here in my State of California, Proposition 8 still persists and same-sex marriages is not recognized by law. I do hope--soon--Proposition 8 will be expunged in the great state of California.

Because I found myself in-sync and drawn into the movie, there were a few film sequences that I enjoyed. Jack (Mr. Ross' character) ultimately chose "husband material" over "Mr. Hookup." Mr. Mike C. Manning plays the sexy and eye-candy "Craig." I think he played his sexy role well, despite the small role of Craig. I enjoyed seeing the character's growth, when Jack's character asked for another hookup, Craig declined on Jack's sexual advances, because Craig wanted more. Audience was given a clue that Craig liked Jack and wanted to have a relationship with him. Even though Craig and Jack's relationship was casual without any strings attached, Craig grew onto Jack.

I wanted to take a brief moment and mention about the Jack-Craig minor plot, because it helped shaped Jack's choices and placed him back on track towards his true love and future husband.

One topic that surprised me is the mention of Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). I should educate and familiarize myself more with the legalities of DOMA. I know NY now allowed gay marriage. I didn't know that gay marriage is equal to straight marriage in the context of dealing with immigration.
