Why Watch? In this inspired documentary from Brent Hoff, scientific subject matters have five minutes to love as hard as they can in order to get their neural pathways to spike with oxytocin. There’s the old man committed to his wife of 50 years; the old woman who sees love as an evolution; the middle-aged man who’s been in love many times before; the young woman with a sweet boyfriend; the young woman who wants to see love as a universal; the young man focusing on his ex-girlfriend; and the 10-year-old boy who will try to win by sharing the love of a family member.

“I can’t believe I picked a guy that, for fifty years, has just allowed me to be who I am.”

Beyond a compelling subject, the documentary is shot in a sleek, modern style with an indie-synth score that wraps the clinical nature of it all in the warm glow of joyous human faces.. It’s fascinating, it’s humane, it’s science. Sweet, sweet science. Watch it and think really hard about someone you love.

What will it cost? Only 14 minutes.
