This film went for too long. It could’ve been a short film and send the same message in a more powerful way. But no, they had to go and keep us seated for 1h30-ish and, frankly, give no clue whatsoever about a lot of things. They managed to squeeze in a lot of sub-plots that were never explained, and got stuck to a single plot-line, that dragged along the entire film. The scenes were sometimes badly played, or had no feeling behind them, and the same thing can be said about the characters, in certain situations. The actors seemed forced to act, and, overall, the film had an tremendous feeling of longingness that, unfortunatelly, was poorly taken advantage of.
A Jehovah’s Witness community is not a good place for a lesbian relationship
The Canadian film You Can Live Forever was co-written and co-directed directed by Sarah Watts and Mark Slutsky.
Anwen O’Driscoll portrays Jaime, a teenager who is sent to live with her aunt after her father’s death. Her aunt and uncle are Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Jaime develops a romantic relationship with Marike (June Laporte). Marike is also part of the Jehovah’s Witness community. It’s not a community that accepts lesbian love, and the path forward isn’t easy.
This is an extraordinary film. The acting is excellent and the plot is believable. The movie has a very strong IMDb rating of 7.5. I thought that it was even better than that, and rated it 9.
We saw this movie as part of Rochester’s outstanding ImageOut LGBTQ film festival.
