Shane Bitney Crone, Producer and subject of the film
BRIDEGROOM tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men
in a loving, committed relationship, with plans toward a bright future
together. Those plans take a tragic turn when Tom is accidentally killed
and Shane is refused from attending the funeral. This film tells the
story of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find
themselves ostracized from their loved ones. The events that transpired
after Tom’s death open a window onto the issue of marriage equality and
basic human rights.
The film was written, directed and produced
by Linda Bloodworth Thomason, creator of Designing Women, and inspired
by the powerful YouTube video, “It Could Happen To You,” by Shane Bitney
