User Reviews

Surprisingly excellent movie
31 January 2005 | by ReviewMonsterSee all my reviews

I walked into Love, Ludlow, on a whim at Sundance 2005 on Thursday evening, having heard nothing about the picture. I was much more than pleasantly surprised. The performances are excellent--first rate mature acting to create a world of adults who in many ways are like children, and total immersion and commitment to the whimsical "Queens, NY" depicted in the movie. The ambiguity of Ludlow's exact affliction adds texture to the piece and facilitates a deeper emotional connection to the material, and the jokes are just plain funny. I also was impressed at how skillfully and fluidly the film moved from comedy to drama, from situational humor to pathos. The audience laughed repeatedly throughout the show, and for all my skepticism I walked out with a smile on my face, and I was not alone. This is a fun, well-made, commercial, jauntily independent film I hope will get released soon.
