In the year 2021, the world seems to have become a very strange place; an unexplained ailment is causing children to drop dead on the streets of New York, ice storms and floods strike major cities without notice, summer is marked by periodic snowfalls, and a strange hole has appeared in the Ugandan sky that causes people to loose the grip of gravity and drift off into space. In the midst of all this, internationally known figure skater Elena (Claire Danes) is getting divorced from her husband John (Joaquin Phoenix) after an 18-month separation. John has arrived in New York City to have Elena sign the divorce papers, but after finally making his way through her entourage, he discovers her to be unhappy and out of sorts, and she asks him to stay. John soon learns that Elena and her staff have a secret -- David (Alun Armstrong), her manager, has had Elena cloned, and now there are three duplicates of her to stand in if she should be killed or injured. John's discovery puts both him and Elena in grave danger, and they are soon on the run from David and his underlings. Meanwhile, Marciello (Sean Penn) ponders the unstable state of the world as he flies from one place to another after a heroic dose of pills designed to combat the fear of flying. It's All About Love received its North American premier at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. Mark Deming, RoviRead Less

Joaquin Phoenix, Claire Danes, Sean Penn, Douglas Henshall, Alun Armstrong. Run time: 105 mins. Aspect ratio: 2.35: 1. Originally released: 2004. Language: English. Movie synopsis With IT'S ALL ABOUT LOVE, Danish director Thomas Vinterberg eschews the ultra-realistic techniques of his groundbreaking THE CELEBRATION to deliver a stylish, epic romance set in the not-too-distant future. Joaquin Phoenix is John, a Polish businessman who has a brief layover in New York City before venturing on to Canada. In New York, John's only goal is to make sure his wife, Elena (Claire Danes), signs the divorce papers in his hand. Elena is a beautiful, world-renowned ice skater whose high-pressure lifestyle caused her marriage to collapse. But when John arrives at Elena's hotel, he senses that something is wrong. It appears that Elena's handlers have cloned her with the intention of killing her as soon as her talent finally runs dry. Soon, with the help of Elena's brother Michael (Douglas Henshall), the couple is on the run across the haunted futuristic landscape, a husband and wife who finally embrace their love for each other. Vinterberg's stylish sci-fi romance comes to thrilling life with the help of his accomplished supporting technicians (production designer Ben Van Os, cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle, and composer Zbigniew Preisner). Vinterberg creates a starkly beautiful futuristic world in which it snows in July, people are dying from loneliness, and Kenya has no gravity.
