Winner of 17 LGBT film festival awards and counting — and nominated for the Independent Spirit Award Best First Screenplay Award!

Handsome Broadway actor Matthew Wilkas (“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”) co-stars with the hilarious Jenn Harris as a gay guy named Matt and his straight best friend Jenn who decide to have a baby together — the old-fashioned way!

While yoga teacher Jenn copes with her co-workers (including her gay best pal Jack Ferver, Strangers with Candy); in his attempt to get over his ex-boyfriend, comic book artist Matt falls for a Clark Kent lookalike (Green Lantern’s Mike Doyle). Meanwhile, Matt’s flaming best friend Nelson provides hilarious ongoing commentary (a great comic performance by writer-director Jonathan Lisecki). The film’s top-notch cast also includes Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky (Girls), Dule Hill (Psych), Sarita Choudhury (Homeland), Tommy Heleringer (The Outs web series), Charlie Barnett (NBC’s Chicago Fire) and stage veteran Louis Cancelmi.

Hilarious, sexy, wacky and romantic, this perfectly told New York tale from writer-director-star Jonathan Lisecki follows the travails of Jenn and Matt all the way to one of the happiest happy endings you’ve ever seen.
