Director Garry Marshall Returns on Valentine's Day




Directed by Hollywood veteran Garry Marshall, Warner Bros.’ “Valentine’s Day” explores love in all its facets on the one day a year dedicated to the art of expressing it. “The film follows seven intertwining love stories that take place during the course of one day in Los Angeles,” Marshall explains. “Some characters fall in love, some do not find love, but they try. There are so many emotions that happen on this day–-love, sadness, excitement depression, longing.”



Marshall has a long history in Hollywood and an extended family that encompasses Hollywood royalty and the newest generation alike. Beloved by many, his name alone was often all it took to enlist some of the acclaimed and popular actors in the film’s huge ensemble cast, including Jessica Alba, Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates, Jessica Bie, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Hector Elizondo, Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Academy Award® nominee Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Academy Award® nominee Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, Academy Award® winner Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, Academy Award® winner Julia Roberts and award-winning singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, in her feature film debut.

Marshall directed two of the film’s stars—Julia Roberts and Anne Hathaway—in their breakout hits “Pretty Woman” and “The Princess Diaries,” respectively, and also reunites with Hector Elizondo, who has been in all of Marshall’s feature films to date.

“It’s really exciting to be with this cast, many of whom I know,” says Marshall. “It’s nice to go to work every morning and there’s somebody that you’ve worked with before and know well. Julia Roberts was nice enough to come back and do a part. I’m working with Julia and her niece Emma Roberts, who just turned eighteen.”



The stories interlock and intertwine over the course of Valentine’s Day, starting with Kutcher’s character, Reed, whose flower shop and café, Siena Boutique, becomes a nexus of sorts on its busiest day of the year; Jessica Alba plays his girlfriend, Morley; George Lopez plays his friend and employee Alphonso; Jennifer Garner is his best friend Julia, who is dating Harrison, a doctor played by Patrick Dempsey. Young actor Bryce Robinson plays Edison, a student of Julia’s, who is intent on sending a particular and crucial Valentine to his first crush. Edison’s nanny, Grace, is played by Emma Roberts, with Shirley MacLaine and Hector Elizondo as his grandparents, Estelle and Edgar, with whom he lives. Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner play Felicia and Tyler, who go to high school with Grace, and Carter Jenkins plays Grace’s boyfriend, Alex, whose Valentine’s Day plans keep getting thwarted.



Another nexus of activity is a talent agency where Queen Latifah is a top agent named Paula, and Anne Hathaway is her temporary assistant, Liz, who is dating Josh, played by Topher Grace, who works in the mail room. Eric Dane plays a conflicted football star and top client of Erin’s, whose publicist, Kara, played by Jessica Biel, hates Valentine’s Day. She is friends with sports reporter Kelvin, played by Jamie Foxx, who is handed the unwanted assignment of covering the day’s activities as a human interest story by his boss, Susan, played by Kathy Bates.

The final tale unfolds on an airplane, with army captain Kate, played by Julia Roberts, sharing a row on the plane with Holden, played by Bradley Cooper, while both are on the way to LAX. Kate will have only one day in the city and is making the long trip from Iraq to see a very special person in her life.

Opening soon across the Philippines, New Line Cinema’s “Valentine’s Day,” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
