Sometimes the wedding videographers are pointing their cameras in the wrong direction. Susanne Bier’s LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED takes place mostly in a villa in Sorrento, where a young and rather conflicted couple (Molly Blixt Egelind and Sebastian Jessen) are getting married. But the kids are not the only ones being put through changes; the mother of the bride (Trine Dyrholm) has just discovered her husband’s infidelity — a double blow since the woman has just emerged victorious from chemotherapy — while the groom’s father (Pierce Brosnan) has so immersed himself in business that he’s lost much of the stuff that connects him to other humans. Could be that each lost soul is what the other is looking for to get through the rest of their lives, but since director Bier is best known for such works as THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE, and the Oscar-winning A BETTER LIFE, the going in this uncommonly nuanced romantic comedy will not be easy, and the stakes will have genuine impact.
Pierce Brosnan sat down with us to talk about the challenges of bringing genuine consequences to a romantic role, the experience of shooting on-location in one of the most beautiful regions on Earth, and whatever happened to Thomas Crown? Click on the player to hear the interview.
