Storyline

In 1967, writer's-blocked USC film student George Lucas has only three days to finish his script or he won't graduate. He ends up falling for a girl named Marian (with her hair done up in buns on the sides of her head) who encourages him to write what he knows and feels.

Great fun!
26 August 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As impossible as it is, this short is one of the best (and funniest) movies I have seen in years; and there is so much detail in every frame, that it not only needs multiple viewings, it DESERVES them!

"George Lucas in Love" not only parallels "Shakespeare in Love" and Lucas' work, but also effectively details how hard it is to come across inspiration, even when it's all around you. Every actor here is dead on and make their parts (though small) very effective.

Myself, being a large fan of the "Star Wars" saga, gobbled up every detail carnivorously; it seems almost every person on the USC campus in 1968 was just begging to be used for visceral input (favorite part: the talk George has with his professor).

If you're a fan of Lucas, his films or just love to see good, funny films, catch "George Lucas in Love" at any cost. Hey, you're on the Internet: WATCH IT NOW!

Ten stars, beyond any shadow of a doubt. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go buy a pet duck.
