I Love America with Sophie Marceau and directed by Lisa Azuelos
Lisa Azuelos had a unique journey in the United States. As a filmmaker, she realized the best stories are her own personal stories. Thus, she wrote and directed the romantic movie I Love America which was based on her own life experiences.
The film stars Sophie Marceau, Djanis Bouzyani, and Colin Woodell. Azuelos directed and wrote the script with Gael Fierro.
Here is the official synopsis:
I Love America follows Lisa (Sophie Marceau), a single woman who decides to take a chance on love again by catapulting her life from Paris to Los Angeles. Her children flew the coop and her famous, yet absent, mother just passed, so Lisa needs a big change. She reunites with her best friend Luke (Djanis Bouzyani), who found success in America with his iconic drag queen bar but is struggling to find his own prince charming. Luka embarks on a mission to give Lisa a fresh start by creating a profile for her on a dating website. From awkward dates to a surprise encounter with John (Colin Woodell), Lisa will understand that the journey to love is a journey towards herself and forgiveness of her first love: her mother.
