LOVE SHINES
(THE MOVIE NETWORK AND MOVIE CENTRAL ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY)

Premieres Saturday, May 14 at 9 p.m.
Love Shines follows Canadian songwriter Ron Sexsmith as he lays everything on the line to make a hit album. The curtain is pulled back for a rare glimpse inside the studio process as Sexsmith partners with legendary hit-maker producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe). Sexsmith dreams of emerging with a commercial hit that achieves widespread radio play. Through a series of flashbacks the songwriter confronts the meaning of success, weighing the lure of stardom against the humble beginnings that sparked the ‘birth’ of his songs. Punctuated by Super 8 footage chronicling the early years, an extraordinary playlist and a stellar cast, Love Shines is a journey to the heart and soul of what songwriting is truly about. Love Shines will air with fellow Canadian musical films Feist: Look At What The Light Did Now and Bruce McDonald’s Broken Social Scene scored film This Movie Is Broken.
