They say that love makes the world go around, but finding the significant other to help keep that globe moving isn't always an easy task, and filmmaker Alan Zweig, who previously offered a look into his cranky soul with the films Vinyl and I, Curmudgeon, examines his problems with the opposite sex in Lovable. As Zweig discusses his dilemma -- he wants to get married and have kids, but can't find a woman with whom he could consider having a long term relationship -- he interviews a handful of single women who air their own frustration with love and courtship, as they express similar feelings about edging into middle age alone and the unfortunate selection of single men. Zweig also reveals how the death of his mother has had an impact on his feelings about wedlock, and plays a tape of his favorite love songs to put himself and his interview subjects in the mood to discuss romance. Lovable received its world premiere at Toronto's 2007 Hot Docs International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
