“I’m asking you to forget everything you know about True Love. The real kind doesn’t make you selfish and shortsighted. Real love makes you better than you ever knew you could be. So, how do you find me? Well, I’m actually the one who finds you.”
Narrated by Love herself, The Romantics is the story of Love and the role that Love has in bringing two people together. In this case, it’s the story of Gael Brennan. Gael is a high school senior, a hopeless romantic and a kid who not only has an up-close view of the unraveling of his parents marriage, but is about to have the first big heartbreak of his life. After all that, Gael has every reason to lose faith in love. What Gael doesn’t know is that Love is weaving her web, nudging him closer to the person he should be with… if the dreaded Rebound doesn’t derail her plans, that is.
