Set in 2014, Poppy Wakefield’s (Nadia Jordan​) life is shattered when she finds out her husband Stephen (Henry Hereford)​ is having an affair. When she receives a well-timed invitation to visit her friend Justin (Rex Lee​) in Los Angeles, she takes off on a quest hoping to cross paths with who she believes is the perfect man–George Clooney! Through a series of close encounters with Clooney, funny adventures and the odd emotional breakdown, Poppy learns to navigate her future without needing a man – no matter how seemingly perfect!

“As well as paying tribute to the ever charming Mr Clooney, the story has a female empowerment theme which is both timely and relevant given the strength women are showing across the world right now” said star of the film and producer Nadia Jordan​, who co-wrote the screenplay with Hayley Nolan​. “And with the current gender equality discussions that are taking place in the entertainment industry, it was important to me to enlist as many talented women as I could, both in front of and behind the camera”.

Jordan credits the unique indie rom-com feature as being inspired by George Clooney and his humanitarian work. “The inspiration to write the screenplay came after reading Don Cheadle and John Prendergast͛s book “Not on Our Watch”, which suggests readers get creative with ways in which to spread the charity’s mission. I wanted to make something fun and lighthearted yet would still raise awareness to the charity”.

Because of this inspiration, a portion of the proceeds generated by For The Love of George will also be donated to the George Clooney supported non-profit the Enough Project  www.EnoughProject.org).

“For the Love of George is a charming film that is a must see this Valentine’s Day”, says Vision Films CEO Lise Romanoff​. “It reminds us that it is often the journey that matters, not the end result. Poppy’s journey of self-discovering is entertaining, often hilarious and relatable!”
