Speed Love Film Poster


A romantic thriller, a film full of fun, music, drama, and a lasting message for today. John and Mary meet at an over 50's Speed Dating event at their local Village Hall. Serendipity has brought them together. Their like minds, their loves, their hates, all pave the way to the ultimate romance. Mary, a part-time teacher, longs for soul-mate companionship, and John, a semi-retired bachelor, seems to be her dream come true. Apprehensive at first, Mary is soon seduced by John's apparent simpatico views. They celebrate their mutual passions and loves in music and song, yet what might turn out to be a night of new beginnings, develops into something far darker and unexpected. With touches of 'Pennies from Heaven', the cast burst into song including 'You're Just in Love', 'I Got You Babe', 'Fools Rush In' and 'You're a Lady'. Starring Elaine Paige (former local girl), Linda Marlowe (Silvie Carter in EastEnders), Neil McCaul (recently seen in Chichester's Production of 'Guys and Dolls') and a few other well-known faces, as well as some local performers who play the speed daters. All shot in and around West Sussex. UK 2016 Kevin Short 80m We are delighted to welcome Elaine Page and writer/director Kevin Short to introduce their film.
