Gabrielle Rose, one of the most respected actors in Canada, is nominated for a Leo Award for for Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Motion Picture for her role in Two4One’.
With close to 150 credits to her name Gabrielle is most proud of the multiple Award Winning feature film Two4One: the story of a transgendered man (Gavin Crawford who won an ACTRA award for his performance) wrestling with the state of his life – an unfulfilling job, mixed feelings for his ex (Naomi Snieckus), and a mother (Gabrielle Rose) yearning for grandchildren – when he suddenly finds himself unexpectedly pregnant.
Two4One is bittersweet comedic drama written and directed by Maureen Bradley. After two years of living as a man, Adam has almost saved enough money to make it official: undergo gender reassignment surgery, and he can finally feel complete. But when he agrees to help his baby-crazy ex-girlfriend artificially inseminate, they wind up in bed together—and they both conceive. Now Adam must reconcile his identity with his biological reality, grapple with his feelings for his ex, and try to figure out what it means to be a man. Two4One will be screening in San Francisco – Frameline: June 20th and Los Angeles- Outfest LA: July 12th. Nominated for 6 Leos, including best feature, Two4One is on a roll.
