Movie Info

An aspiring comic, Neville (Larenz Tate) is burdened by drug abuse and memories of childhood traumas. He and his older half brother Matthew (Martin Cummins), a boxer, are unable to escape from the painful repercussions of their past, which includes their mother serving a prison sentence for killing Neville's father. Things seem to look up for Neville when he becomes involved with a gifted singer (real-life R&B chanteuse Deborah Cox), but still he must struggle to surmount a family legacy that has resulted in so much anger and emotional ruin. Screened at the 2000 Vancouver International Film Festival, Love Come Down features renowned Canadian actress Sarah Polley in a role as an unconventional nun. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Love Come Down


*** (out of four) A sweet and engrossing romantic drama about a young stand-up comedian, played winningly by Larenz Tate and his relationship with a soul singer, played by Deborah Cox. There's much more going on as the two battle their past demons and family issues. It makes for a nice little film that isn't spoonfed to it's audience like a lot of dramas.

A quite interesting premise and fine perfs are ultimately lost to a stagy flashback structure and a rather childish script.

Relentlessly boring, seemingly endless. The performances are good with with the pace of a snail nothing good in the film can save it. Fine score. Simply not interesting. The characters are not particularly well defined and you don't care what happens to them.
