Based on the book by Pulitzer Prize winning author, Carol Shields, The Republic of Love tells the story of Tom Avery, a charismatic late-night radio talk show host, whose unconventional upbringing has made him a little too quick to fall in love and marry, resulting in three divorces before the age of 40. Faye is his total opposite; her romantic ideal has not yet been attained and is unlikely ever to be due to her impossibly high expectations as a result of living with the perfection that is her parents’ rock solid marriage. This unlikely pairing proves the rule that in love, there are no rules and the couple meet and fall deeply in love at first sight. All is faultless, until out of nowhere, Faye`s parents` marriage breaks down suddenly after 40 years of wedded bliss. Faye and their relationship are thrown into turmoil. Will Tom be able to persuade his naturally cautious and terminally confused fiancée to work through all the damage and chaos?

The Republic of Love is a Canada-United Kingdom-Denmark co-production and Deepa Mehta`s sixth feature. It had its world premiere at the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival.
