The romance Ovid and the Art of Love will be released on digital, VOD and on demand May 19 from Level 33.
Set in a mash-up of contemporary Detroit and ancient Rome, the story follows a young Ovid who enrages the brutal emperor by writing a provocative guide to love and runs for his life. In a world filled with togas, hip-hop, sneakers, oration and poetry slams (think Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet or Hamilton), Ovid and the Art of Love traces the life of the popular, witty and controversial Roman poet.
The film stars Corbin Bleu, John Savage, Tara Summers, Tamara Feldman, Sam Haft, Joseph McKenna, Lailani Ledesma, Amanda Lewan, Kimberly Cruchon Brooks, Michael D. Ellison and Ashlee McLemore.
