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.

A thought provoking short film to promote tolerance and acceptance
1 May 2013 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about the experience of a young girl who is bullied because of her sexuality.

"Love Is All You Need?" depicts a world where homosexuality is the norm. The young girl got bullied in school because of her heterosexuality. In just 20 minutes, we see hate, bullying, violence, betrayal and intolerance. What the girl went through is so heart wrenching and tear jerking, that I am sure it will touch every viewer's heart. All these unacceptable attitudes are portrayed very effectively, making it clear that homophobia in the real world is as absurd as the events portrayed in the film. Acting and production are uniformly professional, and I applaud the filmmakers for making this thought provoking short film. I hope it will help spread tolerance and acceptance towards people who are different.
