Recommendation: Love Etc.

Go see this movie: Love Etc.

It's a documentary that takes place in New York City (great NYC footage!) and explores 5 actual love stories. The official "about the film" explains it in better detail than I can:

LOVE ETC. is a witty, poignant and humorous exploration about the universal stages of love, depicted through five real stories over the course of one year in New York City. Young, old, gay, straight – everyone has experienced love – and the joy and frustration that come with it. From teen romance to a decades-long marriage; newlyweds to a recent divorcee, and even a bachelor so frustrated in his search that he chooses to have children without a partner, LOVE ETC. documents the intimate journeys of engaging characters aged 18-89 who reflect the city’s diversity, and takes an honest look at life's most challenging pursuit.

LOVE ETC. began with a concept from Executive Producer Jonathan Tisch, inspired by the day he spent waiting in line, with his fiancée Lizzie, for their marriage license at the City Hall Marriage Bureau. Surrounded by an incredible diversity of couples, they saw that everyone there was united by a common hope and belief in love. This room was a microcosm of the city, and New York City was a microcosm of the world.
While not at all very Gothy, I'll be the first to admit, the archetypes of Love are very well represented here! In NYC the film is now playing at Landmark Sunshine Cinema at 143 East Houston Street, New York, NY.
If you are in a relationship with someone, go see this movie post-haste! It will give you a lot to think about, discuss, and share with each other...even though the film is riddled with Day-Crawlers!
