Floored by Love

In this Canadian television drama, two Vancouver families rediscover their love for one another. Cara (Shirley Ng) and Janet (Natalie Sky) live happily together, until Janet stirs things up by asking her partner to marry her when it becomes legal. Janet’s family is Japanese, and she is already out to her mother and discusses the upcoming wedding with her.

Cara, on the other hand, still puts on a skirt and makeup in front of her conservative Chinese parents. Janet isn’t happy about pretending to be Cara’s roommate and feels as if her girlfriend is ashamed of her and their relationship. Finally Cara gets the courage to tell her parents after she realizes just how much Janet’s love means to her.

In the apartment one floor below, Jesse (Trenton Millar) has just come out to his mom and step-dad, who are both extremely supportive of their teenage son. When his unreliable gay birth father (Andrew McIlroy) arrives though, Jesse is ready to run off with this much cooler parent – until he finds out just how great his family really is.

The stories are very simple and sweet and will leave you with an upbeat message about love and family in a multicultural setting. On the other hand, both are also quite predictable, with a bit of a hokey ending. Written and directed by Desiree Lim (Sugar Sweet). (AB)
