The new indie comedy-drama Give or Take follows Martin (played by-co-screenwriter Jamie Effros), a pragmatist who has checked all of the boxes of an acceptable life, yet he still feels somewhat disconnected – especially from his father, Kenneth, a distant man Martin could never figure out.
Their relationship got even more complicated when Kenneth came out of the closet after his wife died. For the first time, he was able to live openly and honestly as a gay man. He found love with a younger man, his lawn guy, Ted (Norbert Leo Butz), and they had been living together in Ken’s house on Cape Cod ever since.
When Kenneth dies, Martin goes home to sell the house while sharing it with Ted. Grieving, they circle each other, butt heads and negotiate how to remember the different man they both loved and the significance of what he left behind.
From co-writer/director Paul Riccio Give or Take is a touching, award-winning new film about love, loss, connection, acceptance and what it truly means to be home.
