Manhattan-based photographer and filmmaker Poppy DeVilleneuve has released a new short film, “Love is Like Life But Longer”, produced to coincide with the opening of the new Mondrian SoHo hotel in New York. Written by Simon Van Booy, and starring the young actor Jeremy Strong, the film’s cast has a rich heritage in American theatre through actors Joan Copeland (Arthur Miller’s Brother) and Maya Kazan (granddaughter of Elia Kazan, who worked with Arthur Miller on “All my Sons”). In it, a blind young author and a nun fall in love after a chance meeting in a hotel lift and must rely on faith alone to find each other again.
