From Golden Globe® and Academy Award® winning director Susanne Bier (2011, Best Foreign Language Film, In A Better World) comes a romantic comedy set in Sorrento, Italy. Philip (Brosnan), an Englishman living in Denmark, is a middle-aged widower and estranged single father. Ida (Dyrholm) is a Danish hairdresser who's just been left by her husband for a younger woman. The fates of these two souls are about to intertwine as they embark for a trip to Italy to attend the wedding of Patrick and Astrid, Philip's son and Ida's daughter. It’s a story about seeking love and having the courage to change your life – even when you think it’s too late.

Critics Consensus: Undeniably slight and fluffy, Love Is All You Need is redeemed by its picturesque setting and warm performances by Pierce Brosnan and Trine Dyrholm.

Older teens, adults can say "I do" to wedding dramedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Love Is All You Need is a dramedy about love and marriage that mixes sadder moments with light ones. For a romcom of sorts, it takes on some heavy themes -- including mortality, death, infidelity, and sexual identity -- that are a better fit for older teens and adults. Some scenes feature partial nudity (a woman walks in on her husband in a sexually compromising position with his female colleague, and the colleague is naked from the waist down, with her rear end visible), opposite-sex and same-sex characters kiss, there's some drinking (including to drunkenness), and characters swear ("s--t," "damn," etc.) in both Danish and English.
