Movie Info

Originally released to critical and audience acclaim in 1999, GEORGE LUCAS IN LOVE is a hilarious satire of "Shakespeare in Love" that searches for the 'true' origins of the Star Wars saga. A young George Lucas (Martin Hynes) tackles writer's block while trying to complete his final screenplay for USC Film School and the master storyteller is placed center-screen as he searches for inspiration, ultimately finding it in the colorful and ever-familiar characters that surround him, including Marion (Lisa Jakub), his very own "Leia".more

Audience Reviews for George Lucas in Love

All the gags and comedic punches comes from knowing the Star Wars films. Haven't seen Star Wars? Too bad, this film ain't for you. But by now, who hasn't seen those films? Safe to say, if you did, it's quirky fun and sure to bring back a lot of nostalgia. Nevertheless, it's way too dependent on references to Star Wars.

I can't say I've seen many short films in my life, but this has got to be the best one I've seen thus far. The acting and directing is remarkably good and the story is very well thought out. Altogether a great tribute to the Star Wars universe.

And not to forget: now we know where George Lucas got his ideas from :-)
