Albert M. Chan (GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST, LAW & ORDER SVU, 30 ROCK) and Jason Lane Fenton star in this inspiring story about the universal struggle of two people to remain committed to each other through both the happiest and the most difficult of times.
Inspired by real events, THE COMMITMENT is a moving and heartfelt film about Robert (Chan) and Ethan (Fenton), an interracial gay couple who have been chosen from a pool of hopeful adoptive parents by Victoria (Kerri Patterson), a shy and very pregnant Asian birthmother. Susan (Mary Niederkorn), the adoption social worker who facilitates their first meeting, helps the trio navigate through the awkward but often times humorous discussions of race, sexual orientation, and outlandish baby names. Gradually, Victoria begins to open up and eventually forges a bond with Robert and Ethan. When the unexpected happens, however, Robert’s neuroticism and Ethan’s anxiety about fatherhood threaten their relationship.
Embodying the authentic voice and depiction of a committed gay couple amidst the world of adoption, THE COMMITMENT is an emotionally powerful film with uncommonly strong performances by a remarkable cast.
