LGBTQ FILM & TV ICONS JOIN FORCES IN FIRST GAY WEDDING COMEDY “THE RAINBOW BRIDGE MOTEL” -- AND GET THIS: IT’S FOR ALL AUDIENCES!

 

GRAVITAS VENTURES ANNOUNCES THE NOV. 20 RELEASE- “THE RAINBOW BRIDGE MOTEL”- A GAY DESTINATION WEDDING GONE WRONG IN NIAGARA FALLS.

 

The offbeat, indie comedy features beloved, Wilson Heredia - Tony Award Winner for Best Actor in Rent,  Diane Gaidry - star of the iconic, lesbian indie, Loving Annabelle, and famed Real Worldstar Ruthie Alcaide - one of the very first women ever to publicly come-out while on television. “We wanted to do a movie that blurred the lines between Gay & Straight entertainment, a film that both worlds could find funny and bring us closer together. I think we achieved our goal,” said Alcaide, who plays a transitioning newlywed at the seedy motel. 

 

The Rainbow Bridge Moteltracks the budding nuptials of Dean & Darren, an Arizona couple, heading off to their dream wedding in Niagara Falls at the Rainbow Bridge Motel, the self proclaimed, “#1 Gay Wedding Destination.” The Boys are shocked to discover they’ve booked themselves in a run-down, motor lodge sandwiched between two chemical plants run by some crazy guy named Shibbawitz and a Burmese refugee family that helps him. 

 

“And that’s just the beginning!” said Scott Rubin writer, co-director & the actor that plays Shibbawitz. “There’s still the huge challenges of a same-sex wedding -- uncertain wedding protocols, disapproving relatives, religious barriers, secret lives resurfacing - combine this with the catastrophic venue and you have a horror movie - we chose a comedy!” 

 

Shot on location in Niagara Falls, Rainbow’s the first film to ever shoot on the iconic Rainbow Bridge, “You could live your whole life without ever being apart of something special, for us we knew from the start that this was special, even bigger than us and now we get to share that magic with audiences everywhere,” said the film’s co-director, J. Garrett Vorreuter.

 

The film features surprisingly stunning performances including Hollywood vet & 90’s Miramax Films’ fixture, Mel Gorham, who delivers a brilliant performance as Fran, Darren’s religiously challenged, unsupportive Mom, “It’s a role of a lifetime! Career changing!” said Gorham of playing Fran. Filling out the cast, newcomers: Cole Burden (Beautiful Creatures), Chris Modrzynski (One Life to Live), and break-out star, Scott Rubin (National Lampoon’s longest serving Editor in Chief) as the clueless, over-his-head motel manager.
