LOVE TOMORROW, Christopher Payne
UK / 2012 / 80 min / DCP / English
Set in present day London, LOVE TOMORROW is the story of a former Royal Ballet dancer whose life is turned upside down after receiving devastating news. Wandering the underground in a torment of pain and confusion, a chance encounter with a charismatic Cuban ballet dancer called Oriel offers a temporary distraction. Oriel overlooks her engagement ring and suggests she spends some time with him.
Why she follows this insistent stranger is unclear, and why he tolerates her reserve, mood swings and outright hostility is also unclear. But he is troubled too and as the night lengthens and turns into day, the frustrations, secrets and wounds of both their lives begin to emerge, and a fragile friendship promises to turn into something more profound. Dance is a powerful force throughout the film and its energy allows the dancers to push forward and to build a powerful bond.
