Movie Info

In this romantic drama with music from writer and director Casper Andreas, handsome Kyle (Simon Miller) and equally good-looking Marcel (Justin Tensen) fall in love at first sight, and after several months of courtship decide they want to make their relationship long-term. However, there's a hitch -- Marcel is French and his visa to stay in the United States is due to expire. Since Kyle and Marcel can't legally get married (not yet, anyway), they come up with a plan -- Marcel will instead tie the knot with Kyle's lesbian friend Sarah (Jane Elliott), which will earn him a green card so he can stay in America. Kyle's and Marcel's friends and family are OK with the scheme, and even Sarah doesn't want to stand in the way of true love, but there is one significant dissenter -- Kyle's sister, April (Rob Harmon), a former streetwalker who ends up staying at her brother's place. April doesn't like or trust Marcel and sets out to poison the relationship between them. April attempts to cement her long-frazzled relationship with Kyle by asking him to help her form a band; as they work on songs together, their familial bond becomes strong again as she tries to subtly persuade her brother that he needs to dump Marcel and expose his scheme to the INS. While Marcel quickly catches on to April's devious plan, turning the man he loves against his own sister is no simple task. Between Love & Goodbye received its North American premiere at the 2008 NewFest, a New York City-based festival for gay- and lesbian-themed films.more

Critic Reviews for Between Love & Goodbye

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Between Love & Goodbye is a well-made and absorbing cautionary tale. Performances are first-rate, and Jon Fordham's cinematography glows.

Helmer-scripter Casper Andreas, whose previous credits (Slutty Summer, A Four Letter Word) adhered firmly and flamboyantly to the comedic, seems to have hit his stride with the operatic excesses of melodrama.

A dreary gay soap opera.

Between Love & Goodbye tells of the ill-fated romance between a pair of East Village transplants with 2 percent body fat, zero personality and even less chemistry.

With a more organic and witty screenplay, Between Love & Goodbye would have been much more engaging rather than often dull, contrived and unmoving.

Must see. Two guys in love get interrupted by the closest relative of one of the guys. What jealousy can lead to.

I loved this movie. I thought it was so romantic and just perfect, it was like aww the whole time. But when the troubles began it made me sad. I watched it twice cause I liked it so much. The music for this was amazing also. I wish there was a soundtrack.

I thought it was depressing and melodramatic. The writing was poor. Decent cast especially the guy that played the tranny. He was great.
