Love Shines

TMN & Movie Central

2011 | 1 x 90 min

Love Shines—directed by Douglas Arrowsmith—follows Canadian songwriter Ron Sexsmith as he lays everything on the line to make a hit album. The curtain is pulled back for a rare glimpse inside the studio process as Sexsmith teams up with legendary producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe). But will this be enough? Sexsmith dreams of emerging with a song that achieves commercial radio play, but the journey with Rock also turns introspective. Through a series of flashbacks the songwriter confronts the meaning of success, weighing the lure of stardom against the humble beginnings that sparked the ‘birth’ of his songs. Punctuated by Super 8 footage chronicling the early years, an extraordinary playlist and a stellar cast featuring Elvis Costello, Steve Earle, Feist, Kiefer Sutherland and Daniel Lanois, Love Shines is a journey to the heart and soul of what songwriting is truly about.
