Interactive rom-com Choose Love, starring Laura Marano and Scott Michael Foster, arrives on Netflix this month – here’s the trailer.
Netflix has been making interactive films for some time now, perhaps most notably Bandersnatch, an episode of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror. At certain points in the story, the action pauses to let the viewer choose what happens next, or make a decision to change the direction of the plot.
Choose Love applies this format to a rom-com. The synopsis reads as follows:
‘Cami Conway (Laura Marano) has it all. She’s got the job she wants (recording engineer) and is headed towards engagement, marriage and kids with her wonderful boyfriend, Paul (Scott Michael Foster). And yet. She feels something is missing. Is it just FOMO and the fear of commitment that goes with it? Or is she actually missing out on something else, perhaps the abandoned singing career she once dreamed of?
And is Paul the love of her life? What if it’s Rex Galier (Avan Jogia), the sexy British rock star, who walks into her studio and becomes irrepressibly smitten? Or could it be Jack Menna (Jordi Webber), her first love, “the one that got away”, the idealistic world traveler, who returns home ready to rekindle their youthful passion? Cami faces a kaleidoscope of tempting but tough choices: from ethical dilemmas to the frivolous “Truth or Dare.” What she chooses depends wholly on you, the viewer. But be careful what you wish for…!’
Stuart McDonald directs from a screenplay by Josann McGibbon. Choose Love will stream on Netflix from the 31st August.
Here’s the trailer –
