CITY NEWSPAPER

ImageOut 2006 – CITY’S GUIDE TO ROCHESTER’S LESBIAN & GAY FILM FESTIVAL by Dayna Papaleo

Getting Personal Sunday, October 15, Little Theatre, 11:30 a.m. Local filmmaker Beth Bailey premiered scenes from Getting Personal, her debut feature, at ImageOut 2005, and this time she’s returned with the finished product. It’s about four couples — two gay, two straight, all toting baggage of some kind — who meet up via the personal ads. The acting veers from the accomplished (Marc Raco as Paul is the standout of the cast) to the community-theater level, but the script is quite clever at times — one woman likens dating to square dancing: “You can change partners, but there are only so many people in the room” — and the film lovingly showcases the charms of our fair city.
