What if we lived in a world where the norm is to be homosexual and heterosexuality is taboo? How would we react to societal transgressions? The new film “Love Is All You Need?” embraces that premise and explores a “Romeo and Juliet”-like story between a Middle American star quarterback and a male sports journalist that rock a small town to its very core, setting off a series of catastrophic events that will forever change the community. Based on the 19-minute short film of the same name that sparked controversy around the country, the film tackles bullying and prejudice head on, examining our most fundamental biases. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
The film is directed by Kim Rocco Shields, who directed the original short. She has previously directed the film “Burn Crisis” and a series of shorts. She also worked as a script supervisor on “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.” The film stars Briana Evigan (“Step Up”), Ana Ortiz (“Devious Maids”), Tyler Blackburn (“Pretty Little Liars”), Emily Osment (“Hannah Montana”), Elisabeth Röhm (“Law & Order”) and Kyla Kenedy (“The Walking Dead”).
“Love Is All You Need?” will be available on iTunes on November 24 as well as a small release in select Los Angeles theaters.
