For the past twenty years, Doug Block has supported his documentary filmmaking career with a side business of videotaping weddings. Now, as he approaches his own 25th wedding anniversary, Block uses the big event to take a broad and fascinating look at marriage. He revisits some of his favorite wedding couples over the years, as well as experts and “advisors”, to explore what holds some marriages together and what drives others apart.
“Brilliantly constructed, compulsively watchable.” – Ann Hornaday, WASHINGTON POST
“One of the most complete and honest views of marriage that any movie has ever put forth.” – Jess Rogers, CINEMA AXIS
