The Republic of Love
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Based on the novel by Carol Shields, THE REPUBLIC OF LOVE is a romantic comedy about the barriers facing the lucky and the unlucky in love in the 21st century. Tom is a charismatic late-night radio talk show host whose unconventional upbringing has made him a little too quick to fall in love and marry. Fay is an academic whose expectations are impossibly high as a result of the living perfection that is her parents' marriage. The characters connect in a maze of malls, condos and family homes, underpinning the idea that 'geography is destiny' and that each of us has our own 'republic', where lives intersect.

Way Better Than Expected
Enjoyable movie. Worth renting. Love occurs and re-occurs in all forms indeed!
I Love This Movie
I can't seem to stop watching it. I fell in love with both characters.
Had to buy it
Saw it many times online, even bought a couple of the soundtrack's songs from iTunes. The characters are wonderfully written and cast-even the peripheral ones have a complex backstory-and I am glad to finally add this love story to my library.
