Two 4 One

DIRECTOR: Maureen Bradley

West Coast Premiere

Expected to attend: Producer Glen Wood

You may think you’ve heard it all when it comes to exes crossing boundaries, but this refreshing Canadian trans romcom takes the “I didn’t know who else to call” story to a new level—when Miriam rings up her ex-partner Adam with a desperate plea for help: Her biological clock is ticking rather loudly, and she’s purchased an at-home insemination kit. Could Adam pretty please help her out with the conception process? With their relationship having ended two years ago, before his transition, Adam is quite surprised to hear from Miriam, who (as far as he knows) is already in another committed relationship. But saying no is easier said than done, so Adam lends a helping hand (and more) while Miriam’s significant other is out of town—and romance rekindles as the two cozy up again.

Adam continues to struggle with the building of a male identity and career at a predominantly “dudebro” engineering firm, and just as he is about to complete a deeply desired stage of his gender confirmation, he gets unexpected news: Adam is pregnant. Shell-shocked by the seemingly impossible aftermath of his déjà vu encounter with Miriam, Adam reassesses his life—all the while unaware that Miriam has a growing baby bump of her own. With an impeccably cast ensemble delivering nuanced, endearing performances, director Maureen Bradley’s feature debut paints a lovingly comic portrayal of a relationship caught between the ghosts of the past and the uncertainties of the future.
