Los Angeles, CA – July 11, 2018 –
Indulge in your dose of summer romance with ‘LOVE ON THE RUN’ – featured on Hoopla’s collection of Summer Romances.
Directed by Ash Christian, ‘LOVE ON THE RUN’ is not the usual, run of the mill rom-com, but will leave you laughing out loud and believing in an unlikely pair. Featuring Jen Ponton (‘Orange Is The New Black’, ‘The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’) as Franny, a plus size girl focusing on seizing all life’s opportunities, optimistically waiting for her dreams to come true.
Her optimism for love and adventure allows Rick (Steve Howey) to take her hostage during a bank robbery, as Franny becomes infatuated with Rick and his beauty, captivating her as she radiates innocence and obliviousness in the midst of chaos and drama, including the fact she’s been taken hostage by a seemingly dangerous bank robber. Love stories seem to be magical and perfect, but ‘LOVE ON THE RUN’ is a romantic comedy about an unlikely couple that is torn between true love and the chaotic world surrounding them. Can she survive love-on-the-run with a bank robber and will her dreams come true?
“Ponton can bring a certain realness to this role, and not just because she’s an actor. As a plus size woman, she’s had experiences with fat positive and body positive communities, and has formed some pretty great conclusions about how ideas from those spaces could apply to the film industry,” wrote Bustle’s Gina Tonic. Out to change Hollywood’s narrative, Ponton is the center of attention as she brings body positivity and activism to the plus-size world. As a plus size woman, ‘LOVE ON THE RUN’ “sends the message that all the intimate, humorous, and personally difficult moments faced within a real relationship also happen in relationships where one or both partners is plus size. Sure, the film cashes in on the trope of small town girl looking for something bigger, but this small town girl isn’t small and doesn’t want to be, either,” continued Tonic.
