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.

One of the most important films for current times...
19 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes it is fairly low budget and the acting is not "perfect" however if you are straight like me and ALLOW yourself to go there, to imagine this world exists and put yourself in the shoes of if you were gay and the outcast and the loneliness and the pain that could occur.

If you allow this to happen within you, you may have an awakening like I did.

I live in an area that is predominantly Christian and people often only act Christian when it is easy to do so. The real test is to see others out in their daily routine.

Let me say this, there are few actual "saints" out there.

I bawled like a baby watching this, especially towards the end.

If this movie moves you, share it!

We need to LOVE people. This world needs it desperately. Even a smile can change someones day.
