Romeo Romeo is an intimate portrait of a modern marriage, following a young lesbian couple – Lexy and Jessica – on their quest to have a baby. Lexy is a natural nurturer and ebullient children’s choir teacher who has dreamed of motherhood since she was a little girl, whereas Jessica would never want to give birth herself but desperately wants to be a parent. As it becomes increasingly clear that getting pregnant will not be simple for them, the film becomes a rigorous documentation of the trials faced privately by over six and a half million American women - gay and straight - who struggle with infertility. Faced with numerous failed attempts at artificial insemination in the hospital, Lexy and Jessica explore the rapidly changing world of expensive and medically invasive treatments, an all-consuming experience that leads them down an emotional roller coaster. After depleting their life savings on sperm and these new reproductive therapies, Lexy and Jessica are forced to get creative as they land in circumstances they never could have imagined. The wonderful outcome surprises all involved. For students of Gender & LGBT Studies, Romeo Romeo stands at the frontier of documentaries that capture the new realities faced by same sex couples who are actively engaged in building the lives they desire. Inviting the world into their home as well as their doctor's office, Lexi and Jessica deliver to us all an honest portrayal of new families and the new reproductive technologies that help to create them.
