A comic romance about two lost souls on an illuminating road trip from Manhattan to the wilds of Northern Canada.
On his thirtieth birthday, Robert decides he wants more out of life. Disillusioned with his Wall Street existence, he cashes out and leaves everything behind. Celebrating that night, he spots beautiful Daphne across a bar room floor and they hook up. After a mind blowing ecstasy-fueled night of great sex in a roadside motel, Robert wakes up very hungover in the passenger seat of his own car - crossing the border into Canada. While he was sleeping, Daphne discovered the large sum of cash Robert was running away with. In a desperate move to make things right in her own life, she blackmails him into pretending to be her fiancée and spending the weekend with her estranged family in small town Northern Canada. As the line between truth and fiction blurs, Robert and Daphne learn that what they were actually looking for was each other.
“…the leads’ ecstasy-fuelled motel room romp is bathed in amber and red glowing lights with disjointed choppy, elliptical cuts — it’s coy, urgent, sexy and probably one of the hottest love scenes in a mainstream movie, Canadian or otherwise, in a long time.”
– Nathalie Atkinson, National Post
"Sexiest Canadian Film... With I’m Yours, director Leonard Falinger and his stars Rossif Sutherland and Karine Vanasse prove that Canucks can indeed make movies that are romantic and sexy. This film has an actual sexy love scene, says reporter Deana Sumanac. And Sutherland and Vanasse have great chemistry."
— Deana Sumanac, CBC News
"From their first encounter in a Manhattan bar to a visionary resolution against the gorgeous skies of Northern Ontario, the chemistry between Rossif Sutherland's Robert and Karine Vanasse's Daphne is wild, exhilarating and unexpectedly emotional. I'm Yours is a torrid journey that grips the viewer--and never lets go."
