For Better or For Worse is a feature-length documentary that explores the lives and relationships of five feisty couples married for fifty years or longer. The film takes the viewer on an intimate journey as the couples discuss the issues that inform every long-term relationship. Drawing on rich caches of wisdom and experience, the couples recount colorful stories of their shared journeys, from living room jazz jam sessions, to the Gay Pride parade in New York, to the backwoods of Northern California. The couples’s comments and stories, tinged with both joy and sorrow, are often eye-opening, remarkably frank, and surprisingly open-minded. For Better or For Worse was nominated for an Academy Award.
