LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED is a new film by Oscar winner Susanne Bier, written by Bier and Anders Thomas Jensen and starring Pierce Brosnan and Trine Dyrholm. Philip, an Englishman living in Denmark, is a lonely, middle-aged widower and estranged single father. Ida is a Danish hairdresser recuperating from chemotherapy who has just learned that her husband is leaving her for a woman half his age from the accounting department. The fate of these two bruised souls is about to intertwine as they embark for Italy to attend the wedding of Phillip’s son, Patrick, to Ida’s daughter, Astrid. With warmth, affection and confidence, Susanne Bier has shaken a cocktail of love, loss, absurdity, humor and delicately drawn characters that will leave only the hardest heart untouched. It is a film about the simple yet profound pains and joys of moving on - and forward - with your life.
