1h 29min · Documentary, Biography, Music · 8 October 2010
An atmospheric quest film, Love Shines follows Canadian songwriter Ron Sexsmith as he embarks on a last ditch effort to achieve a 'hit'. The curtain pulls back for a rare glimpse inside the process as Sexsmith works with legendary producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crue). But will this be enough? Sexsmith must emerge with a song that achieves commercial radio play, but the journey with Rock also turns introspective. Through a series of flashbacks, Sexsmith confronts the meaning of success, weighing the lure of stardom against the humble beginnings that sparked the 'birth' of his songs. Punctuated by Super 8 footage chronicling the early years, and a stellar cast, Love Shines is a journey to the heart and soul of what songwriting is truly about.
