It is not uncommon to see romance blossom between two main actors who play the lovers in a film. What is less common, but still happens from time to time, are two birds declaring their love to the world by playing a couple on screen. This is the case with Time is up, the new romantic drama to be released by Voltage Pictures on September 9, which also unveiled a new trailer.
In the film, actress and model Bella thorne stars in front Benjamin Mascolo, a famous Italian singer from the duo Benji and Fedi and her real fiancé. In a recent Instagram post, Thorne said she was immensely happy to be in love with Mascolo again while filming the movie, and told fans that she hopes to see them next month.
Thorne, of course, is referring to the special screenings of Fathom Events which will take place in selected theaters across the United States on the day of the film’s release. These particular projections of Time is up will be followed by a long question-and-answer period with the two main players. Fans who cannot attend will be delighted to hear that the film will be released on VOD and digital platforms on September 24.
Time is up is directed by the Italian filmmaker Elisa Amoruso, who also co-wrote the screenplay alongside Lorenzo Ura and Patrizia Fiorellini. In addition to Thorne and Mascolo, Time is up stars Nikolai Moss, Roberto Davide, and Sebastiano pigazzi. You can check out the trailer and poster below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Vivien is a very accomplished student, passionate about physics and eager to join a prestigious American university. She seems to live her own life as a mathematical formula that prompts her to view her own happiness as something to postpone into the future. Roy, meanwhile, is a troubled and problematic young man who, due to trauma suffered as a child, sees his desires continually hampered by a past that seems to constantly haunt him. But mathematics also has its variables and as always, life manages to weave events in more and more surprising and unexpected ways. Indeed, an accident will force them to stop and get their life back in hand, and finally start living in a present that will perhaps prove to be more exciting than any predefined formula.
