#SUNDANCE: “SYLVIE’S LOVE”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
The Film follows an epic 1950s romance between Television Producer, Sylvie (Tessa Thompson) and Saxophone Player, Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha) whose bond is as strong as their love of Jazz.
There have been many 50s-era Romances before, but none have had those starring an African-American Cast. Sylvie’s Love does have a conventional story but done through a different perspective which gives it a fresh feel. The chemistry between Thompson and Asomugha is tangible and makes us root for their love. The Film’s Set-Design and Cinematography are beautiful which elevate the enchanting love story that unfolds before our eyes.
Sylvie’s Love screens at Sundance on Mon, Jan. 27th at 12:15 PM at Eccles, Tues, Jan. 28th at 9:15 PM at Redstone Cinema 7, Thurs, Jan. 30th at 8:30 PM at The MARC, Fri, jan. 31st at 3 PM at Library Centre, and Sat, Feb. 1st at 3:15 PM at Grand.
