"Random Acts of Romance" currently shooting in Vancouver
Award-winning filmmaker Katrin Bowen has a new project in the works--the comedy feature "Random Acts of Romance", currently in production in Vancouver. Sex, abduction, stalking… and that’s just the first date! "Random Acts of Romance" is a clever, insightful, and hilarious fast-paced comedy about modern relationships and the downright bizarre ways people express love. Principal photography on this sexy romp (written by Jillian Mannion, Kevin McComiskie & Katrin Bowen) began at the end of January and wraps at the end of this week.
The film follows David (Robert Moloney -The Odds) and Holly (Laura Bertram -Andromeda), rich newlyweds who should be in love. When Holly accidentally runs over Bud (Katherine Isabelle -Endgame), a pot-smoking lesbian, who questions the couple’s passion for each other, she realizes that perhaps her marriage isn’t working. Then there's Matt (Zak Santiago -Amazon Falls, V) and Dianne (Amanda Tapping -Stargate, Sanctuary), the couple who met in college. Dianne was Matt’s teacher but it’s not going well now. After a stoned conversation with his best friend, Bud, Matt goes all out to win back his wife but she’s more interested in Richard (Ted Whittall -Once Upon A Time), the heartless, attractive millionaire who lives next door to Bud. Keeping up? In the meantime, Richard catches the eye of David’s secretary, Lynne (Sonja Bennett-Young People F**cking), a timid girl who likes to stalk. Yes, "Random Acts of Romance" will take the audience on a sexual joy ride.
At the helm of this film is visionary director Katrin Bowen. Based out of Vancouver, Katrin’s first feature film, "Amazon Falls", debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival (2010) to glowing reviews.
