    Synopsis: 

    Let Them Eat Cake is the wedding nightmare your mother warned you about, a gay marriage gone wrong that asks the guests to salvage the situation by interrogating what it means to be married, single, gay, straight, commitment-phobic, a joiner, included or jeering from the outskirts. Come for the cake, if nothing else!

There is a real pleasure not only in following these artists as they evolve over years, but also in their kind of often elusive work, which provides valuable and revealing context.
