Edie and Thea: A Very Long Engagement (2009)

Forty-two years of romance, struggle and shared adventures finally culminate in marriage for lifelong lesbian couple Edie and Thea, who met in the 1960s and stayed together through the turbulent decades of activism and social change that followed. Looking at pictures from their past, the women marvel at simple triumphs -- buying their first house together -- and reminisce about the constant fear of exposure they once felt.   2009  61 minutes

Thea was disabled due to multiple sclerosis which adds another dimension to this movie.

This is a gentle, moving documentary.
