Storyline

Love is All You Need? tells the story of Ashley, a young teen who is raised in the picture perfect all-American family with two moms, two grandpas, two uncles, and a little brother. But Ashley has a problem, she has a crush on a boy at school, which is against everything this world has ever taught her. This undeniable attraction to the opposite sex causes her to be the constant target of verbal and physical abuse until she is driven to a tragic end. This film hopes to shed light onto the highly controversial issue of human and equal rights in the LGBT Community, and also raise awareness to our current world as to the obstacles that this community faces.

Amazing, thought provoking short film
2 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What if being gay was the norm and heterophobia existed?

In this thought provoking short film we see a world where being gay is the norm in society and being heterosexual will subject you to prejudice, bigotry and hate.

I have heard reviews stating this film is very graphic. I don't feel that it is overly graphic. There is simulated and implied violence but nothing too overt. But I imagine that this film will make some people uncomfortable, which I think, is what the film makers are aiming for.

I love it when someone turns something on it's ear and makes you think, and this film does just that, it turns societal norms around and hopefully will make you think :)
