In the closeted 1960s, two young women met and fell in love — and so began the extraordinary tale of Edie and Thea, whose engagement to be wed would span more than forty years. Directors Susan Muska and Gréta Ólafsdóttir present a lovingly crafted documentary in which two lovers reminisce about how their improbable romance ignited a lifelong journey around the world and through history. Though they were touched by events like the civil rights movement and the Stonewall riots, Edie and Thea's relationship also transcends politics and serves as a shining example of love's ability to endure. Ultimately, with both women in their 70s and Thea's health in decline, the two decide its time to fulfill their dream of getting married. The film captures their inspiring journey to Toronto -- and Thea's last trip on a plane -- where the women are finally able to make their vows. Told with candor, wit, and great affection, Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement is an American love story for the ages.
