To Each Her Own
(Heather Tobin, Canada, 2008, 112 min)
This first feature narrative written and directed by Heather Tobin is a twenty-something coming of age story that delves deep into the feelings and emotions that people go through while undergoing the coming out process in hopes to help people understand how truly hard the struggle with both internalized and external homophobia can be. Jessica Sutterland (Hannah Hogan) is married to her high-school best friend, the eternally devoted Trevor (Shaughnessy Redden), despite having romantic feelings for girls at a young age. Set on the typical small-town suburban path, Jessica begins to get pressure from family about having kids and decides with Trevor to start planning for a baby. Casey (Tracy Rae) is a captivating, out lesbian who lives a somewhat promiscuous lifestyle and doesn't really believe that true love is for her. Casey has a diverse group of friends and an accepting family and is able to live her life without fear of condemnation. When Jess meets Casey she is instantly captivated by the outgoing woman and a romantic bond quickly begins to form between them. As Jess spends more time alone with Casey and more effort avoiding her husband, her life begins spinning out of control. Jess and Casey's growing love sends once cynical Casey to demand more from Jess who is forced to come to terms with her repressed sexuality and examine the feelings that she always considered to be sinful.
Preceded by The Insomniacs (Kami Chisholm, USA, 2008, 11 min) Bell can't sleep, so she goes to a 3 a.m. Insomniac's Anonymous meeting where she meets the girl of her dreams.
