A documentary that goes beneath the surface of our favourite rom-com films, seeking to better understand the way we view love, relationships and romance. From “It Happened One Night” to “Runaway Bride”, from clumsy meet cutes to rain-soaked declarations of love, these films reflect our experiences but are often just as problematic as they are comforting. They're hugely successful and deeply loved by many, but - being frequently dismissed as guilty pleasures – they have often avoided critical analysis. Helped by a diverse chorus of critics, actors, filmmakers and other rom-com fans, and with original songs by her own band Summer Camp, director Elizabeth Sankey embarks on a journey of investigation and self-discovery.
