Hey... I went out with that guy Eddie in Legal. It was a total waste.
Why is that?
Well, look at him: he's totally cute and all, but he lives with his mom.
"So?" I mean, come on! It's kinda' hard to get bumpin' uglies with his mom in the room next to you, huh?
And what's wrong with your place?
I live with my mom.

We saw Love, Ludlow at the Big Apple Film Festival and like it very much. Big Apple is the newest and still the smallest (and I'm sure they want to feel, the hippest) of the three NYC festivals--NYFF and Tribeca.
The first several minutes are slow and not involving enough, but then once the characters start to play out, you are taken in. Terrific acting, and a great woman hero for a change. I grew up in Queens and I think the lead character is completely right.
Brendan won Best Male Performance of the Festival, and the film took second place for Best Feature.
All deserved, of course.
