The Virgins
Tweetable Logline:
Comedy about a young couple who save themselves for marriage, and end up having a crazy adventure on their wedding night.
Elevator Pitch:

A couple waits until marriage to have sex, even though they will only have one night together before the groom has to leave for the Army. That night they get locked out of their honeymoon cottage and end up on a wild adventure. They try to make it back to town, but everything they do pushes them further away. And things get worse when their family finds out and offers their “help”.

They saved themselves for the wedding night, and now they’ll have to save themselves from the wedding night. A story about waiting and waiting and waiting some more.

Production Team:

Writer/Director: Matthew Wilson
Producers: Ryan and Jennica Schwartzman (“Gordon Family Tree”)

About the Production:

“Even though on the surface this is a trivial story of two people who want to have sex, underneath it is a story about longing and trying to grasp something dangling in front of you that you can never seem to reach. It’s also about how we relate to God, particularly when you feel like you’re doing what God wants you to do, and yet life is still difficult and you never seem to get what you want.

It’s about being frustrated with how long you’ve been kept waiting.” — Matthew Wilson
