LOVES PARK (WREX) — An Indie film coming to Amazon is inspired and named after Loves Park.
Carol Rhyu, the film’s creator, says the movie was shot in Los Angeles, but inspired by the city of Loves Park. She said she shot a little bit of footage of the water tower in Loves Park for the film because “it is so endearing and has kept me ‘following my heart’ as it were,” Rhyu said in an email to 13 News.
Here’s a synopsis for the film:
“When pregnant housewife Edie Canody learns her father-in-law has passed away, she and her husband Benjamin return to a disquieting small town of Loves Park for the funeral. Edie is surprised when Benjamin mysteriously decides to stay and run his family’s business. Edie’s behavior soon becomes increasingly bizarre as more time spent in Loves Park is eerily drawn out against her wishes.”
The film is set to release to Amazon on Valentine’s Day.
Here’s a trailer of the film.
