Three of Hearts: A Postmodern Family

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

[A] thought-provoking story…THREE OF HEARTS does a good job of driving home the universality of their daily lives.”—Anita Gates, New York Times

Directed by DocuClub founder Susan Kaplan, THREE OF HEARTS follows the experiment of a New York menage a trois to sustain a lasting relationship. We watch the trio go through trials and tribulations of explaining the relationship to outsiders, trying to have a baby, and running a business. Filmed over 8 years, they go through dramatic changes that raise provocative questions about relationships in general.

The film premiered at the 2004 Toronto International Film Festival and becomes even more fascinating to watch as time goes by.
