Story


Set in the world of Renaissance Faires - unique societies of actors, singers, glass-blowers, ale merchants, sword-smiths, and other crafts people dedicated to preserving the living memory of the golden age of the European Renaissance - "All's Faire in Love"...is a film reminiscent of such successful films as Shakespeare In Love and The Princess Bride. The tale begins when college football star Will (Owen Benjamin) arrives at "All's Faire in Love... Renaissance Faire" to work off his class non-attendance obligation to Prof. Shockworthy (Cedric the Entertainer) by joining the rag-tag peasant Greenbriar Theater Troupe.

The same is true for Kate (Christina Ricci), a performer who left her investment banking opportunities to join her cousin Jo (Louise Griffiths) to blossom on stage and in Will's heart. Will and Kate get the chance to prove themselves when the Faire's chief benefactress create the ultimate competition to determine who will be a "Royal" and who a "Common Peasant" threatening to hand over the Troupe's most coveted Shakespearean stage at the Faire - to a the treacherous and devious Troupe of Royal lead by Rank (Chris Wylde). Will and Kate must overcome all manner of opposition and treachery to prove their worth, win the day, and perhaps... together ...fall in love.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this atrocious, inept, and painfully unfunny comedy manages to sully the reputations of renaissance festivals the world over..”
by Marc Savlov [Austin Chronicle]
“..a dinner of week-old turkey legs and stale mead would be more fun than this Ren Faire-set rom-com disaster..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..not hard when the rest of the cast wallows through humor..”
by Peter Keough [Boston Phoenix]
