After bagging an Oscar for her searing drama “In a Better World,” Danish director Susanne Bier is back with the romantic comedy “Love Is All You Need,” a film that bears no resemblance to her award-winning effort, save for the welcome presence of actress Trine Dyrholm. After playing to great notices at Venice and Toronto, the first international trailer for the Sony Pictures Classics pickup has surfaced, and it’s a charmer.
“Love Is All You Need” stars Dyrholm as grief stricken woman who heads to Sorento, Italy alone to attend her daughter’s wedding, after discovering that her husband had been cheating on her. It’s there that she forms a bond with her daughter’s soon-to-be father-in-law, Philip (Pierce Brosnan). Bier’s frequent star Paprika Sheen also makes an appearance.
Sony Pictures Classics has yet to announce a North American release date for the picture. Watch the international promo below:
