Matrimonium


Matrimonium Information

Matrominium is a 2005 comedy film directed by Michael Akers, his second feature film after the successful Gone, But Not Forgotten. Co-written and co-produced by him and Sandon Berg, the latter appears in a lead role in the film as Spencer who is having a sham same-sex marriage with the straight character Rick Federman in the role of Malcolm to enable the latter to win the 1-million dollar prize on the nationally broadcast reality television show Matrimonium.

The film was featured in Blood Moon's Guide to Gay & Lesbian Film, by Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince and published by Blood Moon Productions in 2006. In that book, Matrimonium is called a "hilarious spoof on reality television."

Synopsis

Malcolm Caufield (Rick Federman), a straight guy decides to go on a reality show called "Matrimonium" for a chance to win a million dollars. The sum comes handy after his allowance was cut off by his family. The reality show however has put a twist. Malcolm has to put a charade that he has suddenly turned "gay" and in a spoof arranged by the TV hostess (Deven Green), he is marrying the very gay Spencer Finch (Sandon Berg). All he has to do to win the prize is to convince his family (Bruce Cronander & Sondra Thieret) to attend the nationally televised same-sex wedding of their "now gay" son. Can Malcolm convince them and what are his true feelings towards his supposed TV scam partner and "lover"?
