    • Synopsis
    • Charlie once made a living as a traveling magician. His picture-perfect marriage and family, though, has been torn asunder by a crippling loss. What will Charlie do to reclaim the family he loves?
      In this arresting drama, the ideal of marriage and parenthood is tested by Charlie’s grief-driven deviance, his overwhelming desire to raise a child, and his ability to create the grandest illusion of them all: happiness.
      With a young boy named Tommy as a prop, Angela, Charlie’s wife, eventually becomes complicit in the couple’s charade. Will Tommy fall under their spell too, or will the grand illusion come unraveled?
      Writer/director Max Currie’s debut feature is a stunning, even-handed depiction of the lengths we’ll go to to create and maintain the appearance of happiness. But don’t be fooled; there is more here than meets the eye. “Everything We Loved" is a fragile, meditative critique of the damage that arises from emotional sleight of hand.
