No sex, no violence, no drugs
2 February 2005 | by weissbSee all my reviews

"Love, Ludlow" is a neat, quirky and entertaining romantic comedy about three quirky young adults (only one is dysfunctional) striving to thrive in New York. The film describes their daily struggle, a colorful and clowny mini-circus based in a Queens walk-up. There's no sex, no violence, and no drugs, but there are some tear-provoking scenes and many laughs. It's kinda sorta like an early Woody Allen comedy.

The script, an excellent collaboration based on an earlier play by David Patterson, is heightened by three terrific show-case performances and superb cinematography under the direction of first-time film-maker Adrienne Weiss. Could be the late-bloomer of Sundance '05.
