Colombian native Alvaro Albarracin had a dream to executive produce his own movies when he was running one of the fastest growing hosting companies in the world, back in 2002. Now, with ÂLove for RentÂ, the first film production by his entertainment company MiamiLA Entertainment, his goal is about to be achieved.
ÂLove for RentÂ is a romantic comedy that tells the story of Sofia, Angie Cepeda, a Colombian college student struggling with immigration issues in LA, who accepts the proposal to become a surrogate mother for $50,000 to overcome her financial difficulties and at the same time forms a close bond with her foster kid neighbor.
ÂI believe 'Love for Rent' is one of the first Latin to U.S crossover films to count with such a varied cast and aimed to a wide audience that is craving for new Hispanic exposure in film,Â comments Alvaro Albarracin. ÂWe have already been accepted and are evaluating many film festivals that show that the industry is hungry for this type of films, produced in English and with Latin elements to it and an easy film to market. We are still considering distribution proposals at this time, even though the film is in post production.Â
Angie Cepeda, who was also born in Colombia and has been tagged by some critics as the Sofia Loren of the Americas, received rave reviews for her work in ÂCaptain Pantoja and the Special Services.Â Most recently, she packed theaters in Italy with the comedy ÂSuddenly Paradise,Â under the direction of Leonardo Perocionni.
In addition to Angie Cepeda, who received rave reviews for her work in ÂSuddenly ParadiseÂ, the cast of ÂLove for RentÂ includes Ken Marino, best known for his role in the comedy series ÂMonkÂ, Jim Piddock and Nora Dunn, both renowned actors in Hollywood (Best in Show and Bruce Almighty, respectively).
MiamiLA also produced the soundtrack of Love for Rent, which features songs by artist Martita Roca, also co-starring in the film. The album has been engineered by GrammyÂ® Award winner Alfredo Matheus and mixed by Gustavo Celis, also a GrammyÂ® Award winner and part of the team that took the Academy AwardÂ® home for Best Sound in the film ÂChicago.Â
