Tessa Thompson’s jazz-filled period romance Sylvie’s Love will hit Amazon Prime for Christmas.
The movie follows Sylvie (Thompson), a woman trying to achieve her dream of working in television while waiting for her fiancé to return from war.
Check out the trailer for the movie below.
Here’s the official synopsis from Amazon:
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, 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.
Amazon acquired Sylvie’s Love following its successful run at Sundance Film Festival. The film currently sits at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Sylvie’s Love comes from writer/director Eugene Ashe. It premieres on Amazon Prime December 25. So what do you think about Sylvie’s Love?
