LOS ANGELES — The independent film “Marriage 2.0” earned Movie of the Year at the Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto on April 17.

The LionReach Productions film, distributed by Adam & Eve — was lauded at the event for its strong female characters and sex-positive story elements and themes.

“We are very grateful to the organizers of the Feminist Porn Awards for this great honor,” screenwriter Magnus Sullivan said. “Our aim all along was to create a new kind of film which brings together the best of adult films with the best of independent filmmaking to truly test the very definition of progressive mainstream cinema.”

A prepared statement from the show’s Creative Director Lorraine Hewitt introduced “Marriage 2.0” to audience members. She wrote, “’Marriage 2.0’ combines beautiful production; poignant sexual exploration; real, human connection; and authentic orgasmic pleasure. The director used a sophisticated eye to perfectly frame each touch and caress, expertly highlighting the sizzling chemistry between performers and setting it all to a narrative that explores the bittersweet connectivity and dissonance of relationships. In other words: it’s got the total package.”

When discussing what caused Adam & Eve to take a chance on distributing the film, Adam & Eve director of business development Bob Christian said, “After talking with Magnus Sullivan, it became clear we shared a view on the state of erotic content and porn — a new model needed to be created to appeal to a wider audience and to bridge the chasm between traditional adult movies and meaningful mainstream fare. I knew it was needed, but Magnus already had a clear vision for the first movie in his head. We wanted to help bring that vision to the screen.”

He added, “I think ‘Marriage 2.0’ is appealing because it satisfies viewers mentally and emotionally, while challenging them. It is also hot and sexually interesting, while being varied and provoking. The movie is a human journey of discovery, self-growth, and acceptance. To say there is something for all viewers may sound trite, but it is absolutely true.”
