In a time where situationships are the status quo and dating app swipe culture threatens the believability of “something real”– Love Jones inspires even the most hopeless of romantics. A 90’s seed-to-flower story of the romance between two motivated young artists — a writer (Larenz Tate) and a photographer (Nia Long) — the film portrays the timeless (read: triggering) tribulations of twentysomethings love.
This exciting independent film with a brave ending and incredible soundtrack (Lauryn Hill, Duke Ellington, Cassandra Wilson) debuted at Sundance in 1997, and was picked up by a major company, but didn’t make waves in the box office. The test of time has only made this love story stronger, though, and remains a keystone of the era’s indie romantic dramas.
