For those who wanted something more upbeat than the previous gay movie (Free Fall) I featured, this one should be more up your alley. The Perfect Wedding is the story of Paul Fowler (Eric Aragon) and Gavin Greene (Jason T. Gaffney), two young gay men who meet and fall in love over the Christmas holidays. The proposal, the intimate wedding, and Paul and Gavin’s ultimate connection are touching scenes in a warm and funny story about a very real, modern American family.
Gavin (super-cute Jason T. Gaffney, Jolly) and Paul (drop-dead handsome Eric Aragon, The Interview), two young gay men, meet and fall in love over a holiday weekend where family and friends are planning the wedding of Paul’s sister. The problem is, Gavin is posing as the boyfriend of Paul’s ex and the two find themselves in a classic comic quandary as they try to ignore their feelings.
First time feature film director Scott Gabriel reveals the screenplay was inspired by The Cosby Show. That classic sitcom entertained without relying on or perpetuating stereotypes. The writing team took a similar approach by not following many other GLBTQ movies that used closeted characters as a source of humor, or were angsty coming-out stories. There are no stereotypes. The humor comes from the situations the two romantic leads find themselves in and how they face those obstacles, rather than relying on gay cliches. Check out the trailer below.
