Ruthie & Connie: Every Room in the House
Documentary Feature Film
USA, 2002
56 minutes

An inspiring and humorous documentary portraying a rainbow-flag–waving, 60something lesbian couple whose relationship spans four decades. Meeting as married women with children in a tight-knit Jewish neighborhood in 1950s Brooklyn, Ruthie and Connie were friends for 15 years, then fell in love, left their families, and caused a sensation in their community. By now, their love has outlasted most of their old friends’ marriages.
