Director: Ernie Smith and Heather Smith Featuring: Diane Sokolowich, Anna Sosa, Brett Moye
Christine, a young married woman, already feels detached from her husband and rebuffed by her mother when she meets Jen, a coworker. In Jen, she finds someone who encourages her desire for an alternative lifestyle, reawakens her repressed sexuality, and supports her coming out to her family. Both find themselves falling in love with each other, but when Jen is resistant to starting a relationship with a married woman, Christine faces a life-defining moment. Emotional and heartfelt, Christine at the Crossroads explores one woman’s navigation of societal expectations and her pursuit of desire and happiness. Discussion with writer-directors Ernie and Heather Smith, and actors Diane Sokolowich, Anne Sosa, Brett Moye, and Pamela Myers.
