Its About Love by Steven CamdenReal life is messier than the movies. A bold, thought-provoking novel from the exceptionally talented, Steven Camden.
Hes Luke. Shes Leia.
Just like in Star Wars. Just like they’re made for each other. Same film studies course, different backgrounds, different ends of town.
Only this isnt a film. This is real life. This is where monsters from the past come back to take revenge. This is where you are sometimes the monster.
But real life? Sometimes, only sometimes, it turns out just like in the movies…

It's All About Love
Sign in. Stars on the purple carpet at the Emmys decide which TV show characters would make great superheroes or supervillains , and more. Watch now. Title: It's All About Love The lives of two families change forever after a fatal tragedy takes place on Reservation Road.
It is the sign of a truly great filmmaker when he can go from one end of the cinematic spectrum to the other, following a distinctive film with one which is its very opposite. Now Thomas Vinterberg has tried to join - or should that be gate-crash? With It's All About Love he thoroughly rejects the Dogme aesthetic of dark, bare minimalism he used to such effect in Festen, and replaces it with extravagance in terms of look, narrative style, themes and cast. Here everything is about surface appearance, while there seems to be precious little beneath. Like Wim Wenders' feature Until The End Of The World, this is a near-future, sci-fi love story which is ultimately too ambitious and plain weird for its own good, and too often comes off just looking ridiculous. Things are not helped by Claire Danes, Joaquin Phoenix and Sean Penn doing woeful Polish accents, and almost every American role being played by Brits who are hardly more convincing.
Its narrative can be classified as apocalyptic science fiction , but Vinterberg prefers to call it "a dream". The production was led by Denmark's Nimbus Film , but the film was largely an international co-production, with involvement of companies from nine different countries in total. It was very poorly received by film critics. The film was written, directed, and produced by Thomas Vinterberg over a period of five years. It was produced through Nimbus Film. At a certain point during production Vinterberg called up Ingmar Bergman and asked him to come and help him finish the film, as he felt he could not complete it himself. Vinterberg recalled that:.

Enduring this dystopian movie, starring Claire Danes and Joaquin Phoenix, is a chore. With a plot as coherent as a foreign taxi driver, and the dialogue to match, the low-budget Strand Releasing picture borders on gibberish.
I was excited about the film, but I was equally excited about decades of Vinterberg masterpieces to come. If he could accomplish so much while adhering to the rigorous set of aesthetic strictures he helped create as one of the architects of the Dogme movement, I could only imagine what he'd be capable of with no restrictions whatsoever. Then something curious happened. That something was nothing. Vinterberg was inundated with scripts and offers from money people eager to get into the Thomas Vinterberg business, but nothing struck his fancy. Of course, the real trick is to nab geniuses before they make their masterpiece, not after. Get in bed with Michael Cimino after Deer Hunter and you wake up the next morning with Heaven's Gate , a pounding headache, an empty wallet, and an enduring sense of shame.
