description

When a young loner becomes the gestational surrogate for a single man in his 40s, the two strangers come to realize this unexpected relationship will challenge their perceptions of connection, boundaries and the particulars of love. Starring Ed Helms, Patti Harrison, Tig Notaro, Julio Torres, and Anna Konkle, this subversive surrogate comedy was a breakout hit at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize.

press for Together Together

"A remarkably restrained spin on a “quirky comedy,” celebrating platonic love and the many strange ways that we find family for ourselves — and it’s never quite what you’d expect."
- Vox
"A sneaky Sundance gem."
