Hot Docs and I highly recommend it. Two’s a Crowd is a documentary about a New York couple named Allen and Collette who move in together after four years of marriage. They’ve been living apart since they said “I do,” but money matters lead them to condense their lives into one small apartment. Two’s a Crowd plays amongst the “Laughter Without Borders” program of the Official Selection, which is quite appropriate given that it offered an enlightening take on contemporary attitudes of marriage when it played with the funny Czech/Slovak documentary Matchmaking Mayor at Hot Docs.
-“Laughter Without Borders” plays June 4th at 9:30
(Another movie that caught my eye from this program is The Dark Side, a parody of the 2009 hit The Blind Side… the idea of Sandra Bullock winning the Oscar is a punch line in itself, so I can’t wait to see this!)
