Based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Carol Shields, The Republic of Love looks at the barriers, problems and successes of the lucky and unlucky in love.
Tom and Fay are a couple with very different views on relationships. Tom, played by Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek) gives his heart away all too easily resulting in a trail of failed marriages. Wheras Fay (Emilia Fox) has unreachably high standards inspired by her parents’ perfect marriage.
However Tom and Fay’s relationship is challenged when her parents separate, completely shattering her illusions and causing doubts about the future of her own relationship.
A delightful, tragic-comedy for romantics everywhere from acclaimed filmmaker Deepa Mehta.
