Critic Reviews for True Love
Nancy Savoca's first (and still best) film shows a good, sensitive ear to the lingo and subculture of this ethnic milieu, of both genders. Competing at Sudance Fest in 1989, it won the jury award for best drama.
An honest, thoughtful look at a real relationship and the various pitfalls surrounding it.
Audience Reviews for True Love
True Love is very much a story about family and neighborhood and Nancy Savoca obviously has an eye for the several generations. This is Savoca's first feature, eliciting nice performances out of neophytes.
A New York couple have cold feet as they dwindle toward marriage. A collection of bad accents and trite cliches, every plot event of True Love is painfully predictable. Commitment-phobic men, mistakenly suspected adultery, and needs of independence all make up this film, which anyone has seen many times before in many forms. Overall, there's nothing true about True Love.
Hollywoodized vision of working class East Coasters. Character development is limited to cliches. Nothing happens here that you don't expect.
