Storyline

Based on the award winning critically acclaimed short film, "Love is All You Need?" is the theatrical feature length version that explores bullying, racism, and prejudice in a way never done before on the big screen. As you read this, a pre-teen or teen, in the United States has committed suicide. Teen suicide in the LGBT community has gained immense popularity on a larger social scale then ever before. While the interest in this social dilemma is thrust into the spotlight none have ever before addressed this social issue in such a manner as Kim Rocco Shields newest film. Love Is All You Need? thrusts its audience into another thought of existence that does more than just acknowledge there is a serious social problem affecting the gay community and does more than just talk about the issue. In Love Is All You Need? its audience lives the issue. Different people and their individual, unique lives intertwine and collide in a world confronted with controversy and forbidden love. This ...

Love is all you need.
10 July 2016 | by (New York City USA) – See all my reviews

Love is All you Need is geared for an open and educated audience. I think it is a brilliant idea to reverse the world we are living in to showcase a problem of the LGBT community. The intensity of the movie took me by surprise and the acting is brilliant. It is easier after watching "Love is all you need" to get a better understanding for the trauma that bullying creates in the life of gays and lesbians. I especially like how society and religion played their cruel supporting part. It is a monumental task to take on such a difficult but relevant subject. My congratulations go to all involved in this piece of art. I would think people that see Woody Allen's movies would enjoy this one.
