essential viewing: new york i love you

Shu Qi & Emilie Ohana star in a short for New York, I Love You

“This is what I’ve always liked about New York…these little moments on the sidewalk, you can watch the buildings, you can look at the people, sometimes meet somebody you feel you can talk to…”

People that know me know I freaking adore New York (and if you didn’t, you know now), so I’m eagerly anticipating New York, I Love You. The film, which is a collection of shorts, is produced by the same team that did 2006’s Paris Je T’aime. Each short is directed by a different director and linked by the theme of love—love anew, love rejected and love sustained—but ultimately, an unbridled love for the city that never sleeps.

Though the trailer doesn’t excite me as much as Paris Je T’aime‘s, there seems to be promise considering the cast is star-studded beyond belief. First, there’s the more seasoned and respected thespians like Jon Hurt, James Caan, Chris Cooper, Robin Wright Penn and Julie Christie. Then there’s the hot, buzzed-about ones… Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha, Shia LaBeouf, Olivia Thirlby and Anton Yelchin. Not to mention other big names including Orlando Bloom, Blake Lively, Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen. Notably, Natalie Portman pulls double duty, starring in a short and directing one along with Mira Nair and Brett Ratner, to name a few directors. The epic NY film drops October 16.

    I actually got goosebumps watching that trailer. I loved Paris Je T’aime. Can’t wait for the New York version…
