Inspired by a YouTube video posted by Tom Bridegroom’s grieving partner Shane, marking the anniversary of his tragic death, Bridegroom is the journey of their love and the emotional aftermath of Tom’s death. It’s the story of how two young men from different small towns in America met and through the strength of their love found the courage to come out to their families and create a life together. When Tom died, Shane found himself with no legal recourse to fight Tom’s parents who barred him from his funeral. Using video footage Tom and Shane filmed together and in candid interviews with their family and friends, Bloodworth Thomason hasn’t just documented a heartbreaking story, she’s created a beautiful testament to a love that stays with you long after the film is over.
