Storyline

This anti-wave sports film is a provocative and disturbing character study of a man struggling to navigate his grief. Told against the backdrop of tennis competition, 30-Love is the directorial debut of filmmaker Robert Cannon and stars Academy Award® nominee Brenda Vaccaro (Kubo and the Two Strings, Midnight Cowboy). In an effort to remember the wife he lost to childbirth, a man drives himself to succeed in the sport she loved. As his obsession grows, her family intervenes and they begin a tug-of-war for control of his newborn daughter. He finds support in his two friends played by Justin Lee (The Interview, Arrested Development) and Mark Gagliardi (Drunk History, Thrilling Adventure Hour). 30-Love depicts the stages of grief and the dark humor we find when we lose someone we love.

Robert and Ira's screen writing abilities are impeccable. This movie had the right amount of comedy and drama within the 90+ minutes of duration. Remarkable movie with a brilliant ending! Watched it twice and enjoyed it every time...actually planning to watch it a third time. I hope there will be a sequel.
