Love: As You Like It

Synopsis
Low-budget independent film. A version of As You Like It set in San Francisco. Using Shakespeare’s language, the film follows free-spirited Rosalind and her cheeky cousin Celia as they throw off the shackles of childhood, disguise themselves as hipsters and run away to the city in order to experience life and love at its fullest. Along the way, they encounter a motley crew of San Francisco misfits including sensitive Silvius and his unrequited punk love Phebe, lugubrious stand-up comic Jacques and his blue-haired friend Audrey, and more. When the girls stumble on lovesick Orlando, who, blinded by love, is unable to see past Rosalind’s masculine disguise, they decide to have a little fun. [Adapted from the synopsis on Internet Movie Database].
