The Colossal Failure of the Modern Relationship
Wine and romance are both uncorked in this delightful journey into Niagara’s spectacular wine country. The film was shot in various locations, including several wineries, a B&B and a restaurant–keep your eyes open to spot the locale–and employed dozens of local cast and crew. The film celebrates the region while not glossing over the work required keeping a relationship strong. While Niagara Falls has enjoyed the moniker “Honeymoon Capital of the World” since the early 1900s, amour seems trickier for the couples in The Colossal Failure of the Modern Relationship. Love in the new millennium is harder to balance—how do you keep a fine vintage relationship from turning to plonk? – Kate Yorga
