‘How He Fell In Love’ Opens In Los Angeles July 8th
Travis (Matt McGorry), a young struggling musician, crosses paths with Ellen (Amy Hargreaves), an older married yoga teacher who is trying to adopt a child with her husband. Travis and Ellen begin an affair that slowly deepens into something more intimate and profound. As their encounters continue, Ellen is confronted with her failing marriage while Travis must face the consequences of his actions.
If you want to see an adult movie then, ‘How He Fell In Love’ is the must see movie for the Summer. Travis (played by Matt McGorry) brings just the right kind of ethos to his role as a young urban man trying to figure out his life when he meets Ellen (played by Amy Hargreaves) who is also working out her married life. These two embark on a passionate and complicated liaison made even more difficult when Travis falls in love with Ellen.
At some point in the film we assume that Ellen who also admits to loving Travis will ride off together towards a romantic ending. And for me this is where Mark Myers(writer/director) shows his skill as a story teller-weaving together the nuances of each character as they navigate their emotional landscape.
Rounding off the cast is Ellen’s husband Henry (Mark Blum) and Travis’s girlfriend Monica (Britine Oldford) each giving solid performances to this very grown-up romantic drama. Love is never easy and ‘How He Fell In Love’ is not afraid to embrace that issue in a pure, honest and sexy way.
The film will open in Los Angeles at Laemmle’s Ahrya Fine Arts Center in Beverly Hills with Q&As opening weekend on Friday, July 8th following the 7:00pm show with Marc Meyers, Matt McGorry and Amy Hargreaves; on Saturday July 9th following the 7:00pm show with Marc Meyers and Matt McGorry and on Sunday, July 10th following the 1:20pm show with Marc Meyers. And on July 15th in New York followed by a national roll-out
