Everyone has a different story to tell, especially when it comes to relationships. Lynda Boyd stars as Anna, a recently widowed cardiologist facing romantic challenges. While attending a wedding, Anna discovers she is not alone and bonds with six other women as they each share their unique stories of navigating the complex world of relationships. This anthology film weaves through the love lives of these women, charting their ups and downs in romance and rejection. Shot in Halifax, Hopeless Romantic features the work of acclaimed female filmmakers Deanne Foley, Megan Wennberg, Latonia Hartery, Stephanie Clattenburg, Martine Blue and Ruth Lawrence, and the help of Margaret Atwood as a creative consultant. The film challenges the classic Hollywood rom-com formula and wades fearlessly into the intricacies of individual experiences. Some relationships are good, some are bad, but all are adventures.
