Movie Info

Independent filmmaker Nancy Savoca's True Love stars Annabella Sciorra as a none-too-bright young lady who evinces untapped brilliance in getting her boyfriend Ron Eldard to the altar. Sciorra's work is certainly cut out for her: Eldard, who prefers chumming around with his old high school chums, is a virtual stranger to the word "commitment." Even so, a wedding date is set, and the guests begin gathering. Will the bells peal for Sciorra, or is she in for another let-down? Hardly original material, True Love scores in its "little truths" about the characters: these are people that you and I know all too well, no matter what our social standing in life. Co-written by Nancy Savoca and her husband Richard Guay, the film won first prize at the Utah-based US Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for True Love

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • This is a subtle movie that invites us to read between the lines. It suggests that a lot of couples may be married to marriage rather than to each other.

  • 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.

  • Even though the story is simple, the characters aren't.

    Oct 15, 2003 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • An honest, thoughtful look at a real relationship and the various pitfalls surrounding it.

Audience Reviews for True Love

  • Oct 30, 2014
    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.
