Under One Roof

ImageOur House (First Run)
Meema Spadola’s 1998 documentary—originally made for PBS—is an affecting account of how children of gay and lesbian couples cope with the often unspoken stigma of having two moms or two dads. Some kids are forthright in their opinions, whether denying that they themselves are gay or sick of having to constantly talk about why they are different. Spadola acutely shows that these children are regular kids, and that America has far to go until it truly is one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
