Back in 2013 a short film called Love Is All You Need found a large audience with its tale of a role-reversal world, where gay people are in charge and use their position to put down straight people. Now, following a successful crowdfunding campaign, it’s been turned into a feature film.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Love Is All You Need? is Romeo & Juliet set in a world where the norm is to be homosexual and heterosexuality is taboo. In a small Middle American town the star quarterback of the local university is outed for being a heterosexual. Her forbidden love affair with a male journalist rocks the town to its very core, setting off a series of catastrophic events that will forever change the community.
‘Love is All You Need? is based on the 19 minute short film of the same name, which was so powerful that it organically garnered over 50 million views and was self-translated by fans into more than a dozen languages, deeply touching and affecting people around the world.’
The film arrives iTunes on November 24th. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
