Summary:Lesbians Edie and Thea recount how their improbable romance ignited a lifelong journey around the world and through history. Though touched by events like the civil rights movement and the Stonewall riots, Edie and Thea's relationship transcends politics and is a shining example of love's ability to endure.
"In the closeted 1960s, two young women met and fell in love -- and so began the extraordinary tale of Edie and Thea, whose engagement to each other would span more than forty years. Directors Susan Muska and Gréta Ólafsdóttir (The Brandon Teena Story) present a lovingly crafted documentary in which Edie and Thea recount how their improbable romance ignited a lifelong journey around the world and through history. Though touched by events like the civil rights movement and the Stonewall riots, Edie and Thea's relationship transcends politics and is a shining example of love's ability to endure. Ultimately, in their 70s, with Thea's health in rapid decline, the two seize the opportunity to fulfill their dream of getting married. The film captures their inspiring journey to Toronto - and Thea's last trip on a plane - where the lovers are finally able to make their vows. Told with candor, wit, and great affection, Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement is an American love story for the ages." -- Breaking Glass Productions' website.
