TWO: The Story Of Roman and Nyro documents the 12-year journey of legendary songwriter Desmond Child and his lifelong partner Curtis Shaw, and the extraordinary way they met and connected with Angela Whittaker, the woman who would carry their twin sons, Roman and Nyro, into the world. From preconception through the boys’ first 10 years, TWO is the personal and powerful story of these unique individuals whose lives become inextricably woven together in magical and unexpected ways. TWO is testament to the universal power and ultimate triumph of love – that it is love that makes a family, affirming modern families may be modern in their making, but timelessly human at their core. Director Heather Winters talks with us about the challenges and rewards of gaining the trust and confidence of a high-profile couple, their family and friends.
“All but the fiercely close-minded will embrace this warm tribute to an unconventional but loving family… the film does a shrewd job of exploding the idea that there is such a thing as a “normal” family. Director Winters earned the trust of all the participants, and her sensitivity produces an enlightening and heartening look at the new normal in childrearing.” – Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter
“It’s inspiring to see a film that shows what love truly means.” – Morgan Spurlock
“A feel-good documentary, and you will leave it believing in humanity again.” – Danita Steinberg, Toronto Film Scene
