Overview

As the hit of numerous American gay and lesbian film festivals throughout 2006, writer/director Desiree Lim's comedy drama Floored by Love deftly interweaves two stories, both set in Vancouver. One tells of the blossoming romance between Asian-American lesbians Cara Shirley Ng and Janet Natalie Sky, whose relationship begins to suffer and crack under the strain of British Columbia's approval of same-sex marriage; Janet is eager to move ahead with nuptials, Cara isn't so sure. Matters grow more complex with an unannounced, nerve-wracking visit from Cara's ultra-conservative Chinese parents, who desperately want her to settle down with a boy. The second centers around Jesse Trenton Millar, a young man of mixed African-American and Jewish heritage, who recently "outed" himself and must learn to contend with both his hugely supportive mother and accountant stepfather, and the unexpected reappearance of his openly homosexual biological dad Andrew McIlroy, now a successful actor in Manhattan; the family threatens to buckle as Jesse decides to head off to the Big Apple with his father. Floored by Love has been praised in many quarters for its mature, contemporary portrayal of multiculturalism and sexual diversity.
