Summary
Based on David Leavitt's novel The Page Turner, this sensual film explores the passage of a young pianist into adulthood and his first romance. When 18-year-old Paul (Kevin Bishop) becomes a page turner for his hero, world-famous pianist Richard Kennington (Paul Rhys, From Hell), his feelings for the artist grow stronger. The two begin a passionate affair and Paul feels love for the first time. Their relationship is complicated by Richard's agent Joseph (Allan Corduner, The Grey Zone, Moonlight Mile) and Paul's recently divorced, highly neurotic mother played by British actress Juliet Stevenson (Truly, Madly, Deeply and Bend It Like Beckham), whose performance the Village Voice called "fiercely committed". A gorgeous blending of emotional drama and classical artistry, Food of Love makes beautiful music
