Louis Theroux: Love Without Limits

Documentary lovers rejoice! Louis is back with another film, this time focusing on polyamory and ethical non-monogamy – the practice of openly and transparently having multiple relationships that go further than just sex. Louie follows families who live this way, showing the implications this way of life has on the children of these families, as well as the couples themselves. Exploring taboo topics is what Theroux does best, and Love Without Limits should be no exception.
