It’s not a coming out movie, it’s a movie about someone falling for someone else during her wedding. There’s a realistic emphasis/conversation about cheating, but in a positive way with characters who support one another through the process. No, they’re not rooting for one another, but this isn’t a movie that is about lesbians being lesbians and the coming out process, etc. It’s about two people who fall in love a little late.
It’s funny that I’ve read some reviews about the movie being implausible. However, it’s not so much the plot that I would focus on in that regards. The small little thoughts, tiny day dreams about someone else, the warmth that you feel when you see them, or the desire to just be around them. Those are the little moments in the movie that stands out to me and remind me a lot of young love. It’s in those moments, which I feel are well portrayed, that makes this movie one of my all time favorites in a very short span of having seen it. I can finally watch something on the screen that is the most plausible to my own experiences in that regards.
What made it very enjoyable were the beautiful people who were the actors, with enough quirky personalities to make it interesting (the mom and dad, the tall blonde best man/friend, the other girlfriends, and the little girl, who was so delightfully honest, and knew what she wanted), the beautiful floral shop filled with so many gorgeous flowers it took my breath away coupled with the luscious generosity of the lesbian florist.
The other thing which made it delicious was the innocent and tentative curiosity of the new bride's intuitive interest in the florist whom she met for the first time of course at the wedding. There is a charming scene where the florist comes to the punch bowl for a drink, to find the bride fishing in it to find her wedding ring which had fallen off, and was now hiding amoung the fruity/floral denizens of the now murky liquid. She manages to not only find it, shielded by said bride, who has to carry on a conversation with another thirsty guest, but gets it back onto the correct hand, strolling away as if none of the above happened, unseen by the
The story has a juxtaposed theme: is love, as the bride believes, something that grows out of a strong, carefully tended friendship (as happened between her and new hubby); or, is it, as the florist believes, something that hits you out of the blue, where with one deep look, you just intuitively know this is the person for you forever? The story is this initially slow, then rapid
decline of the marriage, where hubby feels he must be at fault, accompanied by increasing curiosity on the part of the bride and
avidity to be in the company of the florist, who seems to be following her feelings, but with an admirable engagement which you feel she could step back from almost at any time. She knows her feelings and limits.
You cannot help but feel empathy for all parties: the husband is suffering because his wife has not told him what is happening to her; and she is suffering because this is so new and unexpected, she is in this whirlwind of new feelings and new territory,and cannot begin to explain it to herself,much less him. This kind of suffering I always regret, because just getting a shared reality on the situation, though painful at first often, at least allows both parties to hear, accept, grieve, and adjust, at least a healing process rather than a continuing suffering process.
So, I was thrilled that the bride and new girlfriend broke away into their new relationship and were happy together (the crescendo of the film) but also a little curious how it would turn out eventually. But that idea was not part of this script and movie, so I accept that as written.
What does make me glad is that this relationship is now legally recognized and sanctioned,and that people now have a greater opportunity, and challenge, to find the right parter.
