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. Rhyu said some footage of the Loves Park water tower is in the film.
The story follows a housewife who returns to Loves Park along with her husband to attend her father-in-law’s funeral.
“I had actually moved out west to California and I had gone to film school and they kind of said, ‘what’s a fictional project that you want to direct some day?’ And I just thought of Loves Park,” said Carol Rhyu, the film’s creator.
The movie is set to come out on Valentine’s Day.
