Movie Info

Smart, successful, and charming, Elsie is the perfect girlfriend she also happens to be a serial monogamist, with a long history of broken hearts. When Elsie breaks up with her long-standing girlfriend Robin to pursue another woman, she faces her mother's disapproval, conflicting advice from friends, and the nagging suspicion that she may have made a big mistake. Set in the Parkdale neighborhood of Toronto, Portrait of a Serial Monogamist invites audiences to peek behind the curtain to a world of smart, funny and relatable queer characters, dealing with the universal complications of modern relationships. Not another coming out story, this is a fresh coming-of-middle-age romantic comedy.

Critic Reviews for Portrait Of A Serial Monogamist

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

[An] assured, breezy romantic comedy.

March 31, 2016 | Full Review…

Portrait of a Serial Monogamist is the kind of movie that proves inconsequential rom-coms aren't just for straight people.

March 24, 2016 | Full Review…

The film could have been edgier and more sharply observed. And since it deals with sex and intimacy, a little eroticism would have helped.

February 12, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Despite a few inspired moments and some fun banter, "Portrait of a Serial Monogamist" is a slight, often random lesbian comedy that offers little new in the way of authentic depth or enlightenment.

January 28, 2016 | Full Review…

...there's no actual sex in this film, but there is a lot of witty conversation and observational humor, making it a sort of lesbian Seinfeld.

April 21, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The film creates its best moments with quiet little details, like when Lolli finds herself the sole shiksa at a Shabbat dinner - it's the mirror image of the dinner scene in Annie Hall.
