Okay, guys, just prepare your feels for this one, okay?
A group of friends have made a short film called ‘We Will‘ about same-sex couple Claire (Bianca Bradey) and Rachel (Madeleine Withington), telling the tale of their relationship them from awkward first date to Pinterest-worthy wedding.
“Myself and a team of friends have been disappointed with the slow progress on marriage equality in Australia; so we did the only thing we really knew how to do – we made a very lovely short film that normalises relationships between same-sex couples,” Sydney-based filmmaker Nicholas Lever told PEDESTRIAN.TV.
It’s reminiscent of Get Up!‘s 2011 ad ‘It’s Time‘: tear-jerky, beautifully shot, and presenting same-sex relationships as every bit as normal, loving, awkward, shitty, playful, scary, etc as hetero ones. To use 2015’s overused word of choice, Claire + Rachel are relationship goals, 100%.
The script comes courtesy of Nirrimi Firebrace and Samuel Leighton-Dore (the dude behind the excellent children’s book ‘I Think I’m A Poof‘), with everyone working on the film for free.
Have a watch here:
WE’RE NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING.
