About the Movie
Jack (David W Ross) is a gay Brit living in New York. When his brother (Grant Bowler) gets killed in a car crash, Jack is left to raise his niece, Tara, with his sister-in-law Mya (Alicia Witt). When Jack's work visa is denied moving back to England isnt an option. With Tara, now seven, and Mya, struggling through medical school, he cant leave them behind. Faced with deportation and no other means to stay in America, Jack marries his lesbian best friend Ali (Jamie-Lynn Sigler). When Jack falls for a Spanish architect Mano (Maurice Compte), a U.S. citizen, and I.C.E officers detain and interview Ali and Jack, a terrified Ali files for divorce. Mano, ready for commitment, believes he can marry Jack and keep him in the country. Their lawyer informs them that even though Mano is a citizen, immigration is a Federal level right not afforded to gay marriage on a State level. Jack will be deported unless he marries another woman.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: In a better movie you might play along with contrived plot twists and fake obstacles, but watching "I Do," a movie with thin characters and a languorous pace, you find yourself talking back to the screen.
Rotten: The combustible possibilities surrounding a same-sex marriage involving partners of different nationalities is turned into rather tepid stuff in I Do.
Rotten: A sweet, sincere, yet ultimately tepid story ...
Rotten: Uneven comedy/drama tackles hot button issues like gay marriage and immigration.
I saw this film this weekend at the InsideOut Film Festival in Toronto and it was amazing. I loved the storyline and the how it addressed the gay males experience in the dating world and trying to identify what true love means. It was great to see actors/ actress from other shows/movies take on different roles then what they are normally casted in. I think everyone did a great job performance wise and the story was beautifully written. Watch this movie and enjoy the vision.
