Genre: Romantic / Comedy
LOVEMAKERS is a quirky romantic comedy, full of Shakespearean mistaken identities and over the top situations. LOVEMAKERS, a financially strapped dating agency in Budapest, is retained by a questionable Russian businessman. Their lucrative assignment is to make Jake Griffin, a young Hollywood movie star filming in Budapest, fall in love with the Russian businessman's depressed, high-maintenance younger sister. Successful completion of the assignment by LOVEMAKERS would end the agency's financial woes, but failure could end their life.
