More About the Movie:
To Write Love on Her Arms is based on the true story of Reene Yohe.
The story behind this movie inspired To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA), a non-profit movement “dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide”.
From the Studio: Based on the inspiring, true story that started a global movement, TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS debuts on DVD and Digital HD March 3 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Canada. Kat Dennings (“2 Broke Girls”) stars as Renee Yohe, a young woman who battles drugs and depression, which ultimately leads her on a journey to discover the value of friendship. Inspired by Renee’s path to recovery, Jamie Tworkowski (Chad Michael Murray, “One Tree Hill”) shares her story which leads to his founding of the non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms. “This is a film about broken people loving broken people,” says Jamie Tworkowski, TWLOHA Founder and Author of the original To Write Love on Her Arms story. “Our hope is that it inspires honest conversations and leads to folks fighting for the friends around them. Our dream is that people might get help and even choose to stay alive as this story continues to be told.” The film also stars Rupert Friend (“Homeland”), Juliana Harkavy (Dolphin Tale), Corbin Bleu (High School Musical) and Mark Saul (“Grey’s Anatomy”). In addition, TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS features incredible music from artists such as Travie McCoy, Paper Route, Rachael Yamagata, Dead Man’s Bones, Corbin Bleu, Between the Trees, Kye Kye, Flint Eastwood, Margolnick, Gatlin Elms, Duologue, Danny Leggett, Civilian, Alex Bennett and Bearcat (featuring Renee Yohe).
