This delightful and provocative animated musical comedy for adults follows a spirited young woman named Zelma over 23 years as she learns about and rebels against what women are taught about sex, body image and the promise of that one true love.  Since the age of seven, Zelma has never agreed with the conventions of womanhood – she doesn’t dress, behave or speak like the other girls in her school. However, in her quest for happiness, she allows her fantasies about marriage and relationships to lead her to succumb to peer pressure.  Through marriages, divorces and everything in between, Zelma is determined to unravel the secrets of perfect love, enduring matrimony and what it means to be her own woman. In My Love Affair with Marriage, director Signe Baumane deftly weaves together threads of history, biology and gender, all intertwined with gorgeous animation, vibrant humor and unforgettable musical storytelling.  Featuring the vocal talents of Dagmara Dominczyk (Succession), Matthew Modine (Dark Knight Rising) and Stephan Lang (Avatar). (Dir. by Signe Baumane, 2022, Luxembourg/USA/Latvia, in English, 108 mins., Not Rated)
