'Sylvie's Love': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the Tessa Thompson starrer on Amazon Prime Video
Tessa Thompson returns to the screen to star in a romance that might make you feel like 'La La Land' or 'Love, Rosie'
Perhaps one of the best things the recent Thor movies did was introduce us to the force of nature that is Valkyrie, aka our beloved Tessa Thomson. After becoming immediate queer idol goals after Marvel bosses announcing that Vallyrie is about to get herself a queen in the next movie of the franchise, Thomson returns to the screen in the meantime to star in yet another typically hetero romance drama that may or may not be able to pluck at your heartstrings.
Titled 'Sylvie's Love', the film might either maybe you feel like 'La La Land' or 'Love, Rosie' — there is no in between. Here's all you need to know about it:
Arriving right in time to resonate with all the cozy warmth one exudes on Christmas, 'Sylvie's Love' will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video starting midnight, December 23. The film had initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year on January 27.
According to the official IMDb synopsis of the movie, "Sylvie has a summer romance with a saxophonist who takes a summer job at her father's record store in Harlem. When they reconnect years later, they discover that their feelings for each other have not faded with the years."
Thompson is joined by a critically acclaimed star cast in the upcoming movie. While she plays the titular role of Sylvie, Nnamdi Asomugha hopes aboard as Robert, Eva Longoria plays Carmen, Aja Naomi King stars as Mona, Wendi McLendon-Covey plays Lucy, Jemima Kirke is the Countess, Tone Bell plays Dickie Brewster, Alano Miller is Lacy and Regé-Jean Page stars as Chico.
The film is written and directed by Eugene Ashe, who himself is a former Sony Music recording artiste from Harlem, New York. According to IMDb, 'Sylvie's Love' is "set in the early 1960s and marries his love of music and film." Ashe's debut feature film, 'Homecoming', based on his off-Broadway play, was produced through his Seven Letter Words Films production banner and released by RLJ entertainment in 2012.
Of course there's a trailer to tease what's in store for the epic love story between Sylvie and her saxophonist. It's your typical Hallmark protagonist hung up on her one true love, but set in a time when chivalry wasn't as pompous and deemed unfit for society. Check out the trailer right here!
