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 movie delivers a powerful message of how gay people are treated by the church, their peers, family, society, etc. However, this is an alternative universe where being gay is the norm and being straight is bad. It's a beautiful love story shared between two people and it makes viewers think about the world we currently live in and how gay people are treated on a daily basis.
This movie is gorgeous, heart-breaking, funny, breath-taking, and looks like it took lots of effort to make. I encourage everyone to watch this movie.
However, this movie isn't a cute love story. It delivers the hardships of being born as "not normal" and having to hide your love because people don't agree with it. Also if you are uncomfortable about violence (emotional + physical) I recommend not seeing it. However, this movie may be seen as controversial due to the view of the church. Amazing movie in the end.
