What do you get when you fall in love?
Inlaws & Outlaws cleverly weaves together the true stories of couples and singles — both gay and straight — and all into a collective narrative that is as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.
At the top of the film, we meet a variety of storytellers one on one. We don’t know who’s gay or straight or who’s with whom. As their stories unfold and stereotypes fall by the wayside, we find ourselves rooting for everybody.
There's the story of two Mormon women, secretly college sweethearts until one follows the path her parents have chosen for her and marries — with her beloved serving as her bridesmaid. There's the ex-Marine who has no idea what a happy relationship looks like until he stumbles across his future partner one night at a bar. And there's the nice girl from Brooklyn who somehow always picks the guys who don't treat her right — until she finds and marries a fellow almost too good to be true.
With remarkable honesty, good humor, great music and real heart, Inlaws & Outlaws gets past all the rhetoric to celebrate what we all have in common... We love.
