Filmmaker Michelle Ehlen Struggles to Heal From a Broken Heart in Official Trailer For LGBTQ+ Dramedy ‘Maybe Someday’

Finding the courage to let go and move on while struggling to heal from a broken heart is one of life’s most cathartic – but equally harrowing – experiences. The new critically acclaimed dramedy, ‘Maybe Someday,’ provokes reflections about new beginnings and old endings during the healing process after heartbreak.

The LGBTQ+ feature, which highlighting different aspects of love and heartbreak, is now available on VOD at Amazon and Vimeo, courtesy of Ballet Diesel Films. In honor of the movie’s official release, the distributor has unveiled the project’s official trailer.

‘Maybe Someday’s official release comes after it premiered at last year’s Cinequest Film Festival, and has since screened at over 30 festivals. It has won five awards, including Best LGBTQIA+ Film from the Oxford Film Festival and Best Feature from the Long Beach QFilm Festival.

The project was written and directed by Michelle Ehlen, which marks her fifth feature and first dramedy. Her prior movies most notably are the first lesbian comedy trilogy – ‘Butch Jamie,’ ‘Heterosexual Jill’ and ‘S&M Sally.’ Ehlen also stars in ‘Maybe Someday,’ alongside Shaela Cook from ‘Heterosexual Jill’ and ‘S&M Sally,’ and Charlie Steers, the winner of the Best Actor Jury Award from the Long Beach QFilm Festival for his role in the feature.

‘Maybe Someday’ follows Jay (Ehlen), a non-binary photographer in her 40s, battling a mixture of denial and depression as she attempts to move across the country in the midst of separating from her wife, Lily (Jeneen Robinson). Along the way, she takes a detour to stay with her high school best friend, Jess (Cook), who Jay used to be secretly in love with before she came out as a lesbian, and befriends a charismatic but complicated gay man, Tommy (Steers), who adds humor and levity to her life. Struggling to move forward, memories of the past resurface as Jay searches for the joy and courage she needs for her next chapter in life.

Although the story is fictional, Ehlen was inspired to write the script after her own divorce and cross-country move to Los Angeles many years ago. She said: “It is my hope with the film to portray a more realistic version than what we usually see of moving forward after heartbreak, to normalize the idea that it isn’t just time that heals us; it’s our own willingness and participation in the process.”
