Director's Notes:

The structure of he film is divided into three chapters, where each chapter is a stage in falling Love. The character of Love will guide the audience through these stages, using a couple (Dean and Ramona) as an example of the beautiful and painful aspects of being in love.
I want the dialogue between the characters Ramona and Dean to be authentic and based in a truthful reality. I'm looking for actors not to simply cast, but to become creative partners with. I want the dialogue in these scenes to reveal itself in the rehearsals with my actors. This film needs to be as much of my film as the actors cast in it.
