Synopsis

Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement
Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer met in New York City's West Village in 1965, and for both of them, it was love at first sight, with Edie recalling that they danced so much on the night they met she wore a hole in the foot of her stocking. Edie and Thea were together for 42 years, and always wanted to get married, but in a time when living out of the closet was all but unheard of, the option simply didn't exist, and while that slowly began to change during their years together, it wasn't until Thea was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and told she might only have a year to live that they began to take practical steps. In 2007, Edie and Thea traveled to Canada and were married in Toronto (where non-residents are allowed to have civil ceremonies), finally making good on the pledge they had made to one another decades before. Filmmakers Susan Muska and Greta Olafsdottir directed Edie and Thea: A Very Long Engagement, a warm and moving portrait of a couple who fell in love and stayed in love despite legal and societal misgivings. Edie and Thea was awarded "Best Documentary" honors at the 2009 Outfest, the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
