Love & Basketball

Rated PG-13 124 minutes 2013

A girl who wants to play professional basketball is in love with the boy next door, who also wants to play professional basketball. When they grow up her career seems as important as his—until this idea is put to the test. Told largely from the point of view of the woman, this career-versus-love story (2000) still develops the perspective of the man persuasively, as Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps reveal their characters' motives with nuances of expression that transcend the dialogue. The lush, emotional scenes are enhanced by the sound track—especially when the characters can hear it too. Written and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood; with Alfre Woodard, Dennis Haysbert, and Debbi Morgan.
