Love Comes Lately

Critics Consensus

Though it doesn't quite live up to the source material, this adaptation of three Isaac Bashevis Singer short stories is poignant and charming.

Movie Info

Octogenarian writer Max Kohn (Otto Tausig) is either wildly imaginative or sadly demented. His long-suffering lady friend Reisel (Rhea Perlman) has become used to his frequent absences -- both mental and physical. Max regularly embarks on book tours, but his flights and fantasies are of dubious authenticity. Is nubile Sylvia (Olivia Thirlby) really attracted to him? Has his student Rosalie (Barbara Hershey) actually come to terms with her feelings for him? How will Max finish his new story?

Audience Reviews for Love Comes Lately

  • Jan 20, 2010
    While I found the blurring of reality and imagination thought provoking, and while I admire some of the more mundane humor, I simply could not get behind Max - a charactor who glides through the film as things happen all around him; more of a force that moves the plot along than an actual engaged charactor (fictional or otherwise). The women who drift in and out of Max's vision all do a very nice job supporting the film, especially Barbara Hershey, although I found Pena's performance just too polarized and predictable (hampered by the script, no doubt). What this film tells about ageing is poignant and at the crux, but there's just too much sleight of hand to really make you feel for Max.
