Los Angeles, CA – February 26, 2018 –
This Valentines Month, Owen is getting a taste of his own medicine.
February – the Hallmark month of boxed chocolates, candy hearts and candle-lit dinners have some of us in bed early, ready to indulge in on-sale chocolates, cheap wine and rom-coms that allow us to find love… well at least, for an hour or two.
Written by two-time award winner Chris Pentzell (“Chance”, “Last Call at Murray’s”, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigations”) with assistance from debuting feature-film writer, Adam Omar Shanti, TriCoast Entertainment is releasing “LOVE ADDICT” to Amazon Prime during the month of February to honor Valentines Day.
Directed and produced by Charis Orchard (“Art of Love”, “Perfect Piece”), “LOVE ADDICT” follows Porsche-driving, Los Angeles hotshot, Owen Maxwell (Elliot Haddaway) who is a divorce attorney by day, womanizer by night.
In an attempt to stop smoking, Owen signs up for a hypnotherapy session. Little does he know that the hypnotherapist is one of his many, forgotten ex-lovers, who has a revengeful plan to ‘cure’ him from his womanizing-ways by giving Owen a taste of his own medicine.
Attempting to cure the playboy, Owen awakes from the hypnotism to find that he’s suddenly disgusted by sex – so disgusted that he physically gets ill whenever he sees the sight of an attractive woman. Owen is left with no other choice other than to ‘detox’ from women with the help of a nonsense rehab therapist, Eileen Jenkins (Alyshia Ochse).
Instead of getting turned-on, Owen’s life is turned upside-down. While he becomes obsessed with tracking down his hypnotherapist, he faces an even larger battle – Eileen has fallen for his vulnerable, sensitive side – one he didn’t realize he had.
Will his dramatic life-change and Eileen’s help break Owen from his womanizing ways, teach him there’s more to a woman than the bedroom, and to finally, confess his feelings to find his one true and sincere love?
“This film is filled with non-stop hilarious comedic humor. Interesting storyline keeping you on the edge of your seat for the punch line,” wrote Gisele Rebeiro, LA Splash.
“LOVE ADDICT” has a hilarious and captivating cast, starring the lead of charismatic, egotistical, ‘Owen Maxwell’ by French-Lebanese actor, Elliot Haddaway (“Chi-Raq the Series”, “Muffin’s Coffins”) alongside ‘Eileen’ by Alyshia Ochse (“True Detective”, “The Other Woman”, “Out of Blue”). The film also stars Courtney Stodden (“Are You Scared Yet?”, “POP, Fashion & Sport”), Candace Kita (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, “Bad News Bears”), Phil Proctor (“Monsters Inc.”, “Assassin’s Creed”, “Flightplan”) and Simona Roman (“Gallowwalkers”, “8ish”, “Theft by Deception”).
