Movie Info

BRIDEGROOM tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship that was cut tragically short by a misstep off the side of a roof. The story of what happened after this accidental death- of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized- is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality and human rights like no speech or lecture ever will.

A poignant, powerful tale of first love and untimely death as well as a practical, frankly undeniable, plea for marriage equality.

Audience Reviews for Bridegroom

Heartbreaking. An important document of the realities of discrimination. Put together in a very competent manner.

Christian C

Super Reviewer

Really just an arbitrary rating at this point. The story is more important than any star rating can afford it.

Engaging and emotional, but doesn't tell anything new in this familiar story. I am not if these guys weren't as attractive as they are, this movie would have been made. Is this a god watch? Sure. Is it groundbreaking in any way or enage people in conversation? I doubt it
