Subject: Love Is All There Is
This afternoon (August 22), as part of a promo for the romance classics
channel, the film Love Is All There Is was broadcast. It came out in
1996 and is an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare is
mentioned, as is Juliet's name, and the Juliet charcter, here named
Gina, played by Angelinia Jolie of Gia fame, cites the line "Thus with a
kiss I die." The lovers don't die, however, and the film is a romantic
comedy which focuses mostly on the parents. Also of interest is that it
stars Paul Sorvino who played Old Capulet in the Luhrmann R and J.
As far as I know the film has never been released on video. It may be
rebroadcast on the romance classics channel, however.
