Hot button issues such as gay marriage and illegal immigration are the focus of "I Do," a very timely comedy/drama about an expatriate Brit entering into a sham marriage to stay in the U.S. to care for his family while falling in love with another man. The film views marriage equality in the U.S. through the prism of immigration rights. Stepping right into the middle of the marriage equality debate, I Do is the deeply affecting story about a man forced by discrimination to make an impossible choice. Yet while both sides of the issue passionately state their cases, what’s left in the balance are families and couples often split apart, especially those with bi-national makeups. Immigration, which most heterosexual couples take for granted as a given, complicates same-sex relationships, even in states where marriage is now legal.
