A new documentary


Love, Etc. is a new documentary that follows five couples for one year in New York City: old, young, gay, straight, falling in love, getting married, having babies, breaking up. The film showed the complexities of romantic love--not just the happy stuff of Disney movies. I watched it this week and adored it. It was funny, heartbreaking and beautiful. Here's the trailer...

What do you think, my darlings? Would you want to see it?

Oh, goosebumps, just from the trailer!

Lili said...

Bahahaha the comment about the three rings was great! :-D But seriously, this was a very sweet trailer. I hope I'll get to see the film online somewhere as I doubt it will come to the big screen in Germany.
Oh, and I especially loved the old couple: "Please! Don't be annoying!" ^^

It looks charming and heartbreaking all at one. But, i suppose that's what love is essentially... charming and heartbreaking all at once.

liz @ bon temps beignet said...

Seeing little old people in love just kills me. 4 8 years...48 minutes...48 seconds. ahh, melts my heart! Who wouldn't want love like that?

Ooh, I love documentaries, and Love Etc. looks particularly good! It reminds me a bit of a documentary a friend of mine put out a few years ago, although it followed folks in Chicago that were on the dating scene...it's called Breakup Date (it's a little...darker?!)

Cheers,
mindi

Joanna Goddard said...

Can't wait for it to come to the west coast. Seems like we could all learn from the older couple. :)

Amber Leigh said...

I hope this comes out in the UK! I love documentaries like this - where you follow different people with a common theme like 'Babies'. I can tell that every scene with that old couple is going to make me tear up!

I totally teared up when the older man says he's been married 48 years, but it feels like 48 minutes, 48 seconds. shucks, who *doesn't* want to grow up to be one of those couples? =)

This movie came to a film festival in Montana last fall I can personally vouch that it is excellent!! My only complaint is that you are left wanting more when its over!

jewelry beads said...

Pearls could be the earliest identified jewely, and for ages have been considered by far the most precious Pearl Jewelry Set. So incredibly valued are Freshwater Pearl Necklace, that the Roman commanding officer Vitellius allegedly paid for a total army campaign by using just one of his mother's Freshwater Pearl Pendant. Pearls seem to have been worn as a personal decoration for generations. Freshwater Pearl Ring signify chastity, chasteness and ethics. They have for many years been considered ideally suited wedding day presents because clay beads represent chastity and chasteness. Customarily it's a near requirement for brides. Whether it is a tiara for the bride or accessories for the bridesmaids, Acrylic beads are beautiful, light weight, and very affordable. Also known as lucite beads. Fashion and fabulous Lampwork beads have nothing to do with actual lamps as we know them today. In the western world, Sterling Silver Pearl Jewelry are the preferred gift for lovers remembering their third and thirtieth wedding anniversaries. wholesale jewelry supplies, jewelry beads from online store for jewelry making is popular now.

Rebecca said...

Hey Jo!

My new husband and I caught Love Etc. in LA on Saturday night and really enjoyed it! The director and producer had a Q&A and shared some inside secrets- mainly that they hoped it would end like a Disney tale with rainbows, laughs, and eternal love and were surprised with the actual end result. It was beautiful and we went thanks to your post! We were once again reminded that the world is so very small and connected- thank you for your great work, Jo!

Peggy said...

Hey Jo - I've been jumping into documentaries on Netflix since you posted this (link to your top 10).

I just watched an amazing one, 180° South. It's truly breathtaking, inspiring, and asks all the right questions. It's even a bit funny. Check it out for your next movie night in.
