'Art of Love' lures quartet of actors

Los Angeles: Olympia Dukakis, Virginia Madsen, Aidan Quinn and Zosia Mamet are set to star in the fantasy teenage romance `The Art of Love`.

Dukakis and Madsen will play the last survivors of an ancient line of goddess worshippers, who sell art at a shop run by Madsen`s husband (Quinn). When their teenage daughter, Rhea (Mamet), falls in love with a poetically inclined boy (Sam Underwood), she begins to develop magical powers of her own.

Directed by Maggie Greenwald ("Songcatcher"), written by Peter Hutchings and Christina Mengert and based on a story by Claude Dal Farra, "Love" is a BCDF Pictures production that begins filming this week in Woodstock, NY.
