Please note that cameras are not allowed at these screenings — in particular, pictures of the audience are not allowed.

ABOUT THE FILM

Maureen Marovitch believes in polyamory, the philosophy of simultaneously loving more than one person. David Finch, her live-in boyfriend, does not — and he is far from silent about his wish that Maureen break up with her two other lovers and settle down with him.  Rather than break up, the two filmmakers pack their camera gear and crisscross North America on a quest: to discover how other people deal with open relationships.

Their journey takes them to a swingers’ convention in Las Vegas, to a polyamory conference in New York, to group families in California, and into the lives of friends in Wisconsin and Ontario.  Meanwhile, the filmmakers’ own relationship detours through rocky territory.  “When Two Won’t Do” takes everyone on an emotionally breathtaking trip, questioning society’s norms about love, fidelity and the ideal relationship.
