Sylvie’s Love is a polished, whimsical love story set in the racially turbulent 50s and 60s.
Warning: Fatal Affair was neither fatal nor was it an affair! Actually, while the movie makes good observations and teaches some useful lessons about marriage, the only people for whom it is fatal is its misunderstood, taken for granted audience.
Covers all the bases without being formulaic. Gritty and realistic but you never feel like it’s painting by numbers.
This bittersweet movie foreshadows current events and the discussion about policing in black neighborhoods.
