Sexual Secrets Heal and Hurt in Documentary

"How do you heal after something like that happens to you?" A reporter from a D.C. area television station joins the Q & A session following the July screening of "I Thought It Was Forever."
"I Thought It Was Forever" returns to D.C. on Bigger Screen 
 
It is a creative and compelling true story about love, marriage, happiness, forgiveness and adultery. In "I Thought It Was Forever," seven people boldly share the reality of a spouse having a secret gay life. "We were just being our heads against a marriage that wasn't going to work," says Lorraine, one of the women featured in the film. Audience members will cry, cheer, laugh and empathize as real people put a spotlight on the possibility of loving or loathing someone who promised to love, honor and cherish them until death. "I questioned everything and wondered how I could do this to the woman who was the most beautiful woman on the earth, except for my mother," says Marc, Lorraine's ex-husband.

 "I Thought It Was Forever" strips away misconceptions about homosexuality and same-sex affairs in traditional marriages. On the heels of a sold-out screening at American University, the film returns to the big screen in a much bigger way.  The Reel Independent Film Extravaganza in Washington, D.C. recently announced when it opens up its two-week run of controversial and compelling films, "I Thought It Was Forever" will premier Monday, October 14.
