Sylvia Potter (Lindsey Shaw) falls head over heels for quiet rich boy Lucas Green (Jamie Johnston). Things get complicated when she, her friends, and family discover he's the prime suspect in the disappearance of a 16-year old girl (Kristina Elliott) in the neighboring town of Ridgedale. Lucas swears he had nothing to do with it. Can their love survive the investigation and turmoil? More importantly, can Sylvia survive through it all?
"Love Me" is exactly what it appears to be when picking it up in the video store or at Redbox. It's a PG-13 thriller which appeals to anyone who watches the prime-time shows on TeenNick, The CW, and ABC Family. It isn't completely devoid of fun. This movie gives me the same type of guilty pleasure I receive from watching "Pretty Little Liars." I should be too sophisticated to enjoy it, but I just can't help myself.
The cast definitely draws its target audience to "Love Me." Lindsey Shaw from "Pretty Little Liars," "10 Things I Hate About You," and ''Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide" heads up the cast. ''Degrassi: The Next Generation's" Jamie Johnston takes on the role of the mysterious suspect Lucas Green. Jean-Luc Bilodeau of ''Baby Daddy'' and ''Kyle XY'' plays Sylvia's best friend Harry Townsend. You can't get more teen- oriented than those shows.
Teenagers looking for more examples of angst and drama aimed at them will enjoy "Love Me." However, its audience isn't limited to just them. Anyone who enjoys a good low-budget thriller in the tradition of the TV movies you see on Lifetime will delight in this as well.
