In writer/director Max Currie’s first feature, a magician (Brett Stewart) conjures his greatest illusion — a little boy — after enduring the loss of his son. The trick falls apart when a child abduction hunt closes in. Funded through the NZ Film Commission’s low budget Escalator film scheme, Everything We Love was released online the same day it debuted at the 2014 NZ International Film Festival. At the NZ Film Awards Sia Trokenheim was named Best Actress, and the film was nominated for Best Film, Director and Writer. It was also chosen for a new filmmaker's section at America's Palm Springs Film Festival.
I’m fascinated by good people doing bad things. At the start of the film we meet this playful, loving couple — and yet as the story unfolds they do something most parents would find unthinkable.– Writer/director Max Currie
