The ideas of good/bad, past/future, reality/fantasy are impressively tackled and embodied by the talented cast, but Candis's narrative starts to lose steam halfway through, causing these performances to lose their footing as well.
Although Common and Rainey make a well-matched duo, their chemistry is frequently squandered by a script (co-written by director Sheldon Candis and Justin Wilson) that boxes them into impossible roles in one clichéd scene after another.
While co-writer/director Sheldon Candis and co-writer Justin Wilson's screenplay could have benefitted from a few more drafts (or at least a little more sobriety), the acting in Luv makes the skinny script more palatable.
