Every four seconds a romance novel published by Harlequin or its British counterpart, Mills & Boon, is sold somewhere in the world. “Guilty Pleasures” (60 min.) takes an amusing and touching look at this global phenomenon. Ironies abound in the contrasts between the everyday lives of the books’ readers and the fantasy worlds that offer them escape. Guilty Pleasures portrays five romance devotees from around the world who must, ultimately, find their dreams in the real world. This documentary by Julie Moggan is shown in collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series. Check out the trailer:
