Sun-kissed romance meets family dysfunction in Oscar-winning director Susanne Bier’s delightful new film Love is All You Need. A dapper Pierce Brosnan plays efficient yet terminally grumpy Copenhagen-based businessman Philip, a self-absorbed man who berates people without thinking. Meanwhile across town, Ida, played by the terrific Trine Dyrholm (A Royal Affair, In a Better World) is a mouse-like hairdresser coping with a post-cancer recovery and a deeply crap, philandering husband. Philip and Ida’s cars collide en route to a wedding in the beautifully rustic Italian town of Sorrento, the setting for a grand finale, with Philip and Ida’s families all set to either to fall apart, or fall in love.
“Gloriously enjoyable… The chatter on the (Venice) Lido was that Bier’s film was another Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, but for me it’s far better.” – Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
