"Portrait of a Serial Monogamist"
 
Tweetable Logline:
 
When it comes to relationships everyone's an expert and everyone is full of s**t. A lesbian romantic comedy about coming of middle age.
 
Elevator Pitch:
 
Elsie Neufeld seems to have it all: a successful career as a television producer, a tight-knit circle of friends, and Robyn, her loving girlfriend and longest relationship to date. When Elsie breaks it off to pursue a younger woman, things begin to unravel. Her friends think she has a problem, her family thinks she’s making a mistake and Elsie’s new love interest might not be interested in a relationship. Worst of all, Elsie begins to suspect that she broke up with the one she was meant to be with.
 
Production Team:
 

Writers and Directors: John Mitchell and Christina Zeidler
Executive Producer: Mehernaz Lentin
Director of Photography: Jason Tan
Actors: Diane Flacks, Carolyn Taylor, Vanessa Dunn, Caroline Gillis, Shoshana Sperling and Dawn Whitwell.

About the Production:
 
"The film canon is missing a witty, stylish and ultimately touching lesbian romantic comedy. Nobody dies, it isn’t about coming out, or characters struggling to understand their sexuality, it is a universal story about romance, comedy and relationships. We want to make a film that is truly romantic and truly funny. Yes, there are politics about being queer in the city and they’re a part of the film. But first and foremost, this film is going to be fun. People are hungry for that." -- Christina Zeidler
