Bridegroom (2013): Mini Movie Review

A lot of things can get in the way of finding time to review films, including work, family and The Golden Girls, but some movies still deserve a mention, so that’s where my Mini Movie Reviews come in. Each is less than 100 words long or your money back. That’s a promise people! Today it’s Bridegroom.

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason's documentary Bridegroom explores the relationship between Shane Crone and Thomas Bridegroom, two young gay men from the US. After Tom dies in a tragic accident, Shane finds himself deprived of legal protection and is prevented from attending his partners funeral by Tom's family. 

Bridegroom can be a hard watch at times, but is engrossing throughout. The issues that are raised and discussed are of vital importance, especially in today's current climate and I can honestly say I've never been so moved by a documentary in my life. Bridegroom is compulsory viewing for anyone, regardless of background or beliefs.
