Interview by Paul Salfen
The latest feature film from award-winning director Eleanor Coppola (Paris Can Wait, Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse), LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE tells three stories that explore love, commitment, and loyalty between couples and friends. In the film’s first story TWO FOR DINNER, a married couple (Joanne Whalley and Chris Messina) find an unconventional way to transcend long distance through technology, but discover they were farther apart than they knew. In SAILING LESSON, a long-married couple (Kathy Baker and Marshall Bell) tries to reignite their honeymoon-phase heat through a spontaneous sailing trip… and unexpected events arise. And in LATE LUNCH, a young woman (Maya Kazan) who recently lost her mother gathers together a group of her mother’s friends (including Cybill Shepherd, Rosanna Arquette, and Rita Wilson) to share memories. Surprising revelations ensue.
Throughout all three stories, Coppola uses a light touch and naturalistic ease to find the heart of the deepest friendships and romances.
LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE was produced by Anahid Nazarian (Tetro, Youth Without Youth), and is an American Zoetrope production. It premiered at the 2020 Deauville Film Festival and was also an official 2020 Tribeca Film Festival selection.
Blue Fox Entertainment released LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, November 12 and on VOD Tuesday, December 14.
