I prefer my sappy romances with a twist. A gay twist, to be precise. In Thomas Bezucha's Big Eden a New York artist returns to his home town in Montana to help care for his ailing grandfather, and even as he struggles with his feelings for his old (straight) best friend it's entirely clear to his fellow townspeople who he should really end up with. Their gentle scheming provides some of the funniest and most touching moments in the film, and I sniffled quite a bit at the end. I also have a powerful desire to take a small road trip through some distant mountainous landscapes now.
