Storyline

Judith Nelson quit her medical studies to marry. Years later, her husband, a physician, divorces her to be with another doctor. Deeply frustrated, she now lives alone in her luxury apartment in New York, looking for a new meaning for her life. Pat Francato, the janitor and lift-boy, has a troubled life himself: Gambling debts and the tragic death of his daughter took away all his spirit. One day, he and Judith meet in the right mood and a fragile friendship starts to grow. They can help each other to get on their feet again. But one false move could destroy everything they built so carefully. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trivia

The news clip that Judith is watching at the beginning shows a badly damaged apartment building, as we hear the newscaster speaking about possible terrorist bombings. This image was actually from an October 1992 airplane crash, where an El Al 747 cargo jet crashed into an Amsterdam apartment complex, killing 43. See more »

Judith Moore: Fixing your makeup. He's going to dump you eventually for someone younger, so what is the point? I mean, you're a nice looking woman. Why does everything have to be about men?

the best of the best !

Thank you to the cast, director, producers and everyone connected with this superbly touching film. Hunter, DeVito and Queen Latifah are fabulous together... a remarkable ensemble cast. This movie sparkles in a rare way, uplifting the viewer with its warm glow: it is urbane, sophisticated, sensitive, and, of course, utterly New York in the best of all ways. The hilarity is only slightly offset by universally serious issues that we encounter: love, rejection, renewed hope... punctuated here and there with some interestingly unique directorial shots, song and dance. I can't understand the mediocre rating of other audience views here... "Living Out Loud" has now been incorporated amongst the most refreshing comedic films I've ever seen! Enjoy!!
