Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor's gay love story finally
gets a release date. I Love You Phillip Morris is
the improbable but true story of a spectacularly charismatic
conman's journey from small-town businessman to flamboyant
white-collar criminal, who repeatedly finds himself
in trouble with the law and on the lam, brilliantly
escaping from the Texas prison system on four separate
occasions all in the name of love.
Russell (Jim Carrey) leads a seemingly average life,
an organ player in the local church, happily married
to Debbie (Leslie Mann), and a member of the local
police force. That is until he has a severe car accident
that leads him to the ultimate epiphany: he's gay
and he's going to live life to the fullest, even if
he has to break the law to do it. Taking on an extravagant
lifestyle, Steven turns to cons and fraud to make
ends meet and is eventually sent to the State Penitentiary
where he meets the love of his life, a sensitive,
soft-spoken man named Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor).
devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building
the perfect life together prompts him to attempt (and
often succeed at) one impossible con after another.
Told with an uncanny sense of humor and a lot of hear.
