EAT WITH ME – Movie Trailer Film and Animation

EAT WITH ME – Movie Trailer Film and Animation

Feature-length dramedy in pre-production.

No one likes to be a party of one. “Eat With Me” is a feature-length dramedy film that will begin shooting in January 2012. A coming of age film for Baby Boomers and their Gen X kids, it’s a foodie movie, a dumpling movie, and a chick flick all rolled up around LGBT issues.

But it’s about more than just cooking or eating. it’s about communicating through food and finding each other and ourselves through those shared moments.

Emma lives a comfortable life as a homemaker. It’s safe, predictable, and quiet–so quiet that the awkward silences between her and her husband ring loudly. When her husband cuts off his wedding ring because it’s giving him headache, it’s the last straw. She packs a bag and runs away from home to crash on her gay son’s couch.

Meanwhile, her son (Elliot) struggles with his own fears of commitment while aimlessly searching for meaning and purpose. Can one hot rendevous in a bar bathroom be the spark of something deeper?

It all seems on the up and up until Emma comes face to face with what it means for her son to love another man. Will this type of love be too much for a mother to bear and can a son even choose between honoring his mother’s wishes and honoring his heart?
