A Long Time Ago, In A College Campus Far Far Away. . .
14 February 2002 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

The origin of Star Wars can finally be revealed in George Lucas In Love a brilliant short-film which gives the true story behind the writing of the classic movie.

This is another well-known spoof of Star Wars & is a brilliant comedy about how it all began. Taking his inspiration from his colleagues, teachers & a woman with a familiar hairstyle a young film student by the name of George Lucas endeavours to write a sci-fi screenplay.

Although short in length this film isn't short in laughs as there are numerous jokes about the films we know so well. Many of these are visual gags but some incidents also mirror events in A New Hope. This film never fails to hit the mark taking inspiration from not only Star Wars but the Oscar winning Shakespeare In Love.

Like Troops this feature defies its low-budget constraints to give a very professional feel. The acting is good especially from Martin Hynes & the film even imitates the style of Star Wars with similar wipes & cuts. Every Star Wars fan should beg, borrow or steal a copy of this film as you can't afford to miss it!
