Random Acts of Romance is an anti-romantic comedy about two couples whose relationships are falling apart and three singles – a pot dealer, wacked-out receptionist and playboy – who lead them down a dark path as they try to capture love. Ultimately about love and the different stages of it, the film looks at not having it, looking for it, losing it, trying to repair it, trying to save it and trying to invent it. Random Acts of Romance shows us love is not perfect. It’s sloppy. messy and it’s what makes us human. At the end of the day you have to laugh at it. This film is loosely based on the short I, Stalker which Bowen directed for Kevin McComiskie when he and co-writer Jillian Mannion were her students at Vancouver Film School.
