I needed this movie. The main relationship never felt inauthentic or had unrealistic obstacles. Sometimes, we aren’t on the same page. Scratch that: people are rarely EVER on the same page. We want the person we love to understand us even in our silences, and we play ourselves every time. It’s a cycle that will often not end in such a nice way as this film does.
Also, it is a true testament to my enjoyment that I immediately wanted to watch Love Jones all over again as soon as I finished it.
