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 ...

Good, but not Great
29 December 2016 | by pagantruthorganizationSee all my reviews

While I like the film and the short I feel like the director should have made it a two part movie with the first part being set in the 90's and then the second part being set in the early/late 2000's with the actors from part one taking on roles in part to as parents, teachers, and coaches in part two. I'm not a fan of splitting movies into two parts, but this movie felt like it was two different movies set in the same universe. I also have to agree with other reviewers when they said that the universe that was set up was inconsistent as they had the girls playing football, but they had male coaches and male announcers which should have been made female it's just a minor detail, but it would have made the universe seem more realistic with girls playing sports it would be them who would have more knowledge what's going on during the game. I would have taken it one step further by having none of my female cast wearing skirts or dresses as they would be seen as boy's clothes.

The movie is good and I do recommend it.
