- Ovid and the art of love
- "The young Ovid enrages the brutal emperor by writing a provocative guide to love and must run for his life. Set amidst a lively mash-up of contemporary Detroit and ancient Rome - filled with togas, hip-hop, sneakers, oration, and poetry slams - (think Hamilton or Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet), this film follows the life of the popular, witty, and controversial Roman poet, who dares to stand up to a tyrannical leader."--Container.
