Long term relationships can often wind up on shaky ground due to the very thing that makes them so attractive. Sharing your life in all its details creates a powerful bond, but over time, it can also be the foundation of friction if things settle into routine, and the upcoming Sundance Film Festival short “Partners” takes an intimate look at a couple who find themselves facing a crisis.
Written by and starring Jen Tullock and Hannah Utt, and directed by Joey Ally, the short dives into the lives of Kate and Leigh, who are waking up to some problems in their relationship. Here’s the synopsis: Professional and life partners Kate and Leigh have shared everything for years, from their apartment to the popular bar they co-own. When a slump in their sex life forces them to reconsider their relationship they must confront how intertwined their lives have become.
“Partners” will have its first screening at Sundance on January 23rd at 9:30 PM. Watch the exclusive trailer below.
