"Third Person" movie quotes intertwine three separate stories of love stories across the world. The romantic drama was written and directed by Paul Haggis, previously of "Crash" fame. "Third Person" premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival before its June 20, 2014, theatrical release.In "Third Person," three love stories, all of which are connected in one way or another, are told. In Paris, Michael (Liam Neeson) spends his days writing, including about his lover, Anna (Olivia Wilde), while also trying to deal with his wife, Elaine (Kim Basinger), with whom he recently split.

In New York, Julia (Mila Kunis) is trying desperately to spend time with her son again but that is difficult as she's been accused of trying to murder him. Julia works with Theresa (Maria Bello) to convince the courts and her son's father, Rick (James Franco), that she is innocent.

In Rome, Sean (Adrian Brody), father to a daughter with Theresa, meets and falls in love with Monica (Moran Atias). He wants nothing more than to escape his life in American to run away with Monica but that plan is complicated when she asks him to help her rescue her kidnapped daughter, or so she claims.
