Plot Summary

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.

Crazy Credits Toward the end of the credits, the film references screenwriter William Goldman: "There are really two kinds of flicks - what we now call generic Hollywood movies, and what we now call Independent films. Hollywood films - and this is crucial to screenwriters - all have in common this: they want to tell us truths we already know or falsehood we want to believe in. Hollywood films reinforce, reassure. Independent films, which used to be called "art" films, have a different agenda. They want to tell us things we don't want to know. Independent films unsettle." -William Goldman Which Lie Did I Tell?
