Long-Term Relationship (2006) directed by Rob Williams

Director: Rob Williams

Writer: Rob Williams (writer)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance

Tagline: A romantic comedy about the hard things in life

Plot: Out of all the gay men in Los Angeles (and sadly, he's tested out more than a few), Glenn (played by Matthew Montgomery) has finally found his soul mate -- a cute Southern boy named Adam (Windham Beacham). Their relationship started, as so many great relationships have, with the personal ads ("GWM seeks LTR"). From the moment they met, it was instant attraction. Now Glenn's in love for the first time, and it feels great.

There's only one problem. Well, actually a few problems. But are they big enough to be deal-breakers, or can Glenn and Adam work through their differences?

Glenn's straight friends encourage him to stick it out and make it work -- after all, everyone's happier as part of a couple, right? Meanwhile, his gay friends tell him to move on and find someone they can all like.

Ultimately, only Glenn and Adam can decide what it takes to sustain a long-term relationship.

Long-Term Relationship is the first feature from writer/director Rob Williams. A classic romantic comedy with appeal to both gay and straight audiences, Long-Term Relationship celebrates the power of true love. Filming was completed in January 2006. Long-Term Relationship played at film festivals around the world, and was released on DVD in November 2007.

In memory of Elizabeth Gilzean

As an author for Harlequin Romance, Elizabeth Gilzean published thirteen novels. Her work was primarily focused on the very popular Doctor/Nurse romances. She wrote primarily in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Born in 1913, she also wrote under the pseudonyms Elizabeth Houghton and Mary Hunton. Her real name was Elizabeth Houghton Blanchet, though some sources cite Gilzean as her real name. As an author for Harlequin Romance, Elizabeth Houghton published ten novels. As an author for Harlequin Romance, Mary Hunton published three novels.

She was the daughter of Muriel Liffiton. While to many Muriel Liffiton is known only as M. Wylie Blanchet or as Muriel Blanchet, on May 2, 1891, in Montreal, Canada, she was born Muriel Wylie Liffiton. However, she wrote under her married name, having married Geoffrey Orme Blanchet in 1909. So it has been as M. Wylie Blanchet that she has earned a place in Canadian literature as the author of The Curve of Time, an unusual book of travel and adventure. After being widowed at an early age in 1926, Muriel Blanchet raised her five children on Vancouver Island in Canada ’s British Columbia. For several summers Muriel, her children, and the family dog set off in a twenty-five foot motor boat, the Caprice, to explore the waters between Vancouver Island and the rugged Canadian mainland.

Elizabeth Houghton Blanchet (1913-1995), who was known as Betty, studied nursing prior to becoming a successful romance novelist under a pseudonym in England. She was married twice, first to J. Gilzean and later to J. Parry.
