- Rainbow Cafe presents “Love and Other Disasters “
An ultra modern romantic comedy that portrays heterosexual and homosexual relationships with an openness and candor deemed either deserved or shocking depending on one’s point of view, “Love and Other Disasters” explores the complex difficulties inherent in modern relationships while poking fun at those relationships and the business of movie making. The straight “British Vogue” assistant Emily “Jacks” Jackson (Brittany Murphy) and openly homosexual Peter Simon (Mathew Rhys) are best friends who live together with a familiarity that’s usually reserved for family members. Bathroom chats while one takes a shower and the other sits on the toilet are commonplace in this household and that same openness extends to their discussions of their romantic and sexual relationships with the same or opposite sex. Jacks’ usually accurate “gaydar” fails her when she meets photographer Paolo (Santiago Carbrera) and this begins a complicated relationship between Paolo and Jacks in which Jacks attempts to set Paolo up with Peter without his knowledge and Paolo yearns for a relationship with Jacks while assuming that she’s romantically involved with Peter. Add into this unusual love triangle an ex-boyfriend James (Elliot Cowan) whom Jacks is still sleeping with out of pity. Add in a host of other friends and you have a delightful romantic comedy.
