"Just the Three of Us"

Tweetable Logline:

Just The Three Of Us is a short fiction film about a couple in their 70s looking to spice up their marriage.


Elevator Pitch:

Just The Three Of Us is a short fiction film about Regina, an African-American woman and Hank, a Caucasian man who have been married for 50 years. As with many long marriages, the passion quietly fizzled out a while ago so they made a radical decision, “What about a threesome?” The short takes place one afternoon in a Brooklyn coffee house where they meet people who respond to their ad in Craigslist's Casual Encounters. Through these meetings, they learn about their marriage and themselves.

Production Team:

Angela Tucker - Writer, Director (BLACK FOLK DON'T, (A)SEXUAL)
Danielle Beeber - Producer, Editor
Lauren Domino - Producer
Caryn Waechter - Director of Photography (forthcoming THE SISTERHOOD OF NIGHT)
Zoe Rotter - Casting Director

About the Production:

"This film was inspired by an article in The New York Times about the rise of STDs in retirement communities. I was surprised by the phenomena and began reading more about elder sexuality. This inspired me to make a fiction film.

"Making a film like this about an African American woman in her 70s exploring elements of sexuality and her societal given role as caretaker feels really exciting. As an African American woman myself, I know how taboo discussion about sexuality is and I am interested in making a project that tackles that head on in an unexpected way." -- Angela Tucker


Current Status:
