US  2010, 100 min

Our co-Opening Night feature is the World Premiere screening of You Can't Have It All, a sparkling, wacky comedy about finding love.

Set in Philadelphia, this breezy romantic comedy written and directed by Jay Arnold (and co-written by Thom Cardwell) features exceptional acting from a cast of film and television veterans, a snappy script, and a joyful tale of love. It makes for a festive start to our 125-film extravaganza. Wealthy 50ish bachelor Paul (Jon Lindstrom of As the World Turns )has difficulty finding the perfect woman. his meddling socialite sister Elise (the talented Wendie Malick Just Shoot Me, Pushing Daisies is determined to find him the female companion he's never had. Complicating her matchmaking is her dread that her son Brian (Ariel Shafir) may be gay. And then there is Andy (newcomer Chris Murrah), a sexy young gay man who has yet to meet the perfect man. Adding to the mixture is Roz (Natalia Cigliuti, Raining the Bar, Waterfront ), Andy's over-protective best friend who is the voice of reason, or so she thinks. Put them all together and what have you got? A hysterical romp of twists, turns, and mass confusion! But love is definitely in the air, and naturally everyone has a master plan. Elise conspires to fix up Paul with a lovely woman. While Roz does the same for Andy with a hot guy. But Andy is convinced that Paul may actually be the answer to finding his perfect man. The only problem is that Paul is straight - or is he? Confused? That seems to be the prevailing sentiment in this sexy, captivating romantic comedy. -- Raymond Murray
