I’m spending Christmas with Sylvie!

Spread the love

How often do you fall in love with a poster?

My heart skipped a beat when I saw the poster for Sylvie’s Love at first glance I thought a romantic drama or maybe a romcom .. but watching the trailer I got something unexpected and delightful

Who doesn’t love a trailer that teases without giving away the film? Whoever cut ‘Sylvie’s Love’ trailer knows the art of the tease. I mean TWO handsome men vying for Sylvie’s attention all the while she’s pursuing her own dreams … a career <the scandal> for a Black woman to choose herself or <dare I say> love! You get it Tessa Thompson being the star and Executive Producer. The only way to tell our stories is for us to get behind the table making boss moves.

Eugene Ashe wrote and directed the film that stars Tessa Thompson, Nnamdi Asomugha, Aja Naomi King, Jemima Kirke, Tone Bell, Alano Miller, with Wendi Mclendon-Covey and Eva Longoria. This is his second film after Homecoming (2013) and am very excited for film premiering on Prime Video December 25th. So ho-ho ho Merry Christmas to me and other Black Girls who want to see ourselves loved, pursued and winning life.

In Sylvie’s Love, the jazz is smooth and the air sultry in the hot New York summer of 1957. Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha), a saxophonist, spends late nights playing behind a less-talented but well-known bandleader, as a member of a jazz quartet. Sylvie (Tessa Thompson), who dreams of a career in television, spends her summer days helping around her father’s record store, as she waits for her fiancé to return from war. When Robert takes a part-time job at the record store, the two begin a friendship that sparks a deep passion in each of them, unlike anything they have felt before. As the summer winds down, life takes them in different directions, bringing their relationship to an end. Years pass, Sylvie’s career as a TV producer blossoms, while Robert has to come to terms with what the age of Motown is doing to the popularity of Jazz. In a chance meeting, Sylvie and Robert cross paths again, only to find that while their lives have changed, their feelings for each other remain the same. Writer/director Eugene Ashe combines romance and music into a sweeping story that brings together changing times, a changing culture, and the true price of love.
