Netflix Film Features Montana Man's Story

MISSOULA -

A film produced by a Montanan and supported by stars like George Takei and Neil Patrick Harris is now streaming on Netflix.

It tells the story of former Flathead Valley Resident Shane Bitney Crone's relationship with Tom Bridegroom. The two were in a committed relationship for years, when Tom died tragically in an accident in 2011.

The film chronicles how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized. It is called "Bridegroom" and won an audience award for best documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Crone helped raise funding for the project through the popular website kickstarter. It became the single most funded documentary in the history of crowd funding-- with more than 65-hundred supporters.
