SMITTEN! Film Review – A Breezy Tale of Love and Magic

May 22, 2018



If you are only familiar with Barry Morrow from his Oscar-winning screenplay for Rain Man, you might not know quite what to expect of his newest film. Smitten! is an hour and a half of goofy fun in the rustic Italian countryside. A little light on plot but full of love, humor, and sincerity, it makes for a decently satisfying mix of romantic comedy and magical realism.

[. . .]


Smitten Supporting Characters Steal the Show


In Criss and Ghenea, Morrow has two talented, charismatic leads.
It is frustrating, then, to see them saddled with such a by-the-numbers storyline. Boy meets girl. Girl is not interested in boy. Boy tries to get in girl’s good graces. Girl slowly warms up to him. Boy makes an obnoxious, grandiose gesture. Girl rejects him again. A thrilling dance scene at the village festival. Ill feelings dispelled, they’re in love! Root for them as you may, it’s hard to believe this happening organically, sans magic.


[. . . ]

These ostensibly ‘side’ stories give Smitten! a robust, sympathetic heart. While some might find Tyler and Rosalia’s narrative a bit less engaging, Criss and Ghenea throw themselves into the roles and bring them to life. The colorful characters of the village, the beautiful countryside, the little flourishes of music and architecture provide a delightful background. All in all, Smitten! is a sometimes silly, usually fun, and always heartfelt movie.

It looks like "Smitten!" has been removed from IMDB.com--both the movie and the listing in Darren's profile. I just checked the rottentomatoes.com site too, and the title comes up but all the movie info no longer shows up.  :very confused
I wonder what happened? 

I still hope we'll get to see this movie soon.

That's weird.  I agree, Lilikoiluv, I'm still gonna keep hoping it's released in some form at some point. Cross fingers!

Well, Lilikoiluv got her wish!  Smitten! is back on the table, but just renamed to "All You Ever Wished For"!

I wonder if Barry Morrow waited to see if Darren won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie, to see if that would increase his chances of getting a distributor (the distributor is called House of Film)? 

Bravo that they located a distributor!   Yea!  :bravo clapping hands celebrate Hope it shows in theaters sometime in 2018!!


From Darren Criss Army:




Note:  Should be corrected to state "Emmy Award winning" actor  (and Emmy nominated songwriter) Darren Criss.  :happy face

This charming and endearing, modern fairy tale presents a clash of the “big city way of living” with “ Italian country style” when a New York City fashion mogul sends his son Tyler (Darren Criss) to Milan to take care of a business deal, hoping the trip will inspire his son to take over the family empire.

Plans go terribly wrong when Tyler gets kidnapped for ransom by a group of inapt Mafioso who end up taking him to the wrong hideaway - an enchanted Italian cottage called “Sarbolai” in the lush, rolling hills above Piano. The kidnappers’ scheme has a startling twist when each of the men becomes caught in a strange enchantment causing them to fall hopelessly in love with the first soul to meet his eyes.
