This is the time of year when the number of indie movies in theaters shrinks while the big, brassy ones beat the drum loudly, with little satisfaction to be found in all that noise. Unless you want to fight the first-weekend crowds for a "Star Trek Into Darkness" ticket, which is definitely worth your dime, consider going small and light with "Love Is All You Need." It's the latest from Danish director Susanne Bier, an Oscar-winning specialist in family dramas. So it's nice to see her go for frothy for a wedding weekend that explores all the ways romance can surprise you at any point in life. The most surprised — and the ones to watch — are Pierce Brosnan and Trine Dyrholm. As Philip and Ida, father of the groom and mother of the bride, all the worries they brought with them evaporate in the Italian sunshine. Watching this effervescent love story just might have the same effect on you.
