A documentary about custom suits, accepting difference & living bravely in one’s own skin.

SUITED follows its subjects—clients seeking a personalized experience—into the minimalist office space of Bindle & Keep, a bespoke tailoring company based in Brooklyn that caters to a diverse LGBTQ community and looks beyond the gender binary, creating custom-made suits for gender-nonconforming and transgender clients. Clothier duo Rae and Daniel take a holistic approach to their work, considering each client’s personal narrative, which becomes inextricable from the creation of the perfect suit. From Derek’s emotional journey as he prepares for his wedding, to Everett, a law student in a conservative environment, or Mel, who simply wants to look good for their 40th birthday party—the need for well-fitting garments represents deeper meaning around identity, empowerment, and feeling good.

Going deeper than fine fabrics and silk linings, SUITED takes a modern, evolved look at gender through the conduit of clothing and elucidates the private and emotional experience surrounding it. With heart and optimism, the film documents a cultural shift that is creating a new demand—and response—for each person’s right to go out into the world with confidence.

Presented by “Off the Square Screening Room”, a partnership between Medford Film Collaborative, Medford Community Media, and Media department of Medford Tech.

The Medford Film Collaborative is a coalition of community organizations in Medford Massachusetts who share a passion for film.

This month’s enchanting film is based on a true story – an unlikely romance in which a recluse hires a fragile yet determined woman to be his housekeeper. Bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, she yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and create art with passion.The unexpected happen and their love inspires! 90% tomatometer

“Her life was constricted, but her gaze was expansive. And so is her movie.”

“An oddly affecting love story about burying the hurt and trudging forward in the face of pain and finding your own version of happiness.”

“”…centers on the outsider artist’s unusual, at times abusive, but ultimately loving relationship with her employer-turned-husband.”
