Romantic comedy is a favoured movie genre across the world, it’s great for date night, girls night and just a little time out, whether it be in the cinema or your own lounge room.
A new release beginning in cinemas across the country on December 1 is Up For Love, a French romantic comedy about overcoming prejudices to find love.
The movie stars Jean Dujardin whom you may have seen in The Wolf of Wall Street, The Monuments Men and The Artist, and Virginie Efira of It Boy and Second Chance fame. It is directed by Laurent Tirard (Astérix and Obélix: God Save Britannia, Little Nicholas, Moliére) and is in French.
SYNOPSIS: Academy Award®-winner Jean Dujardin stars in this French, romantic, laugh-out-loud-comedy that is all about the long and short of falling in love. When successful lawyer, Diane (Virginie Efira) gets a call from the man who has found her mobile phone, she is immediately intrigued and charmed. As she and Alexandre (Dujardin) chat and make plans to meet, it becomes evident that the chemistry between them is great indeed. However, when they meet the next day it turns out there may be one small problem.
New relationships are always awkward and for Diane & Alexandre the challenges in their relationship could be somewhat of a tall order. Despite his charisma and good looks, Alexandre comes up a bit short (almost 2 feet, actually). Is Diane out of his reach or can they meet in the middle? They’re both looking for love but society is watching and judging. A perfect match in every way but one, will this new couple be up for the challenge? Will they be UP FOR LOVE?
We were fortunate enough to send 10 of our members off to the movies to watch Up For Love, and I look forward to hearing what they think in the comments below.
