Kristi Tally @KDawnSeven @NewBlackMan I really enjoyed #SylviesLove. I was totally plugged in. It was refreshing and came right on time as a much needed reprieve to collectively lift us as we round out this year of continuous grief and suffering. #SylviesLove #SylviesWatchParty 06:45 PM - 28 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @KDawnSeven 11. Austin Channing Brown @austinchanning I am just awe struck by @TessaThompson_x once again. This time it is her cadence, her intonations. She is purposeful and dignified and playful and curious. She is what I imagine my own grandmother was like as a young adult in 1950. Stunning performance. #SylviesWatchParty 02:24 AM - 28 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @austinchanning 12. Chloe-Missing Malec everyday❤😭❤ @SDAnz2011bis Just finished watching #SylviesLove and what a beautiful movie. What subtle and sweet performances from Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha. Loved the music, the cinematography of old New York. 👏👏👏 05:27 AM - 06 Jan 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @SDAnz2011bis 13. Dream, Visualize, and Realize it @softinside10 You know what I love about Nnamdi’s acting in this movie? The quiet nature he has, even when angry, happy and hurting Sylvia (not my favorite part). He gives off a shy nature about the character so well. #SylviesLove #SylviesWatchParty 01:49 AM - 28 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @softinside10 14.

Will Scheibel @CallingBarranca After this past year (week?), SYLVIE’S LOVE is the pure cinematic bliss we need: an ode to Black life, music, and NYC, vibrantly rendered in midcentury costumes and production design. I was smitten—with the characters, the stars, the whole film. Great romantic melodrama. 01:06 PM - 09 Jan 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @CallingBarranca 24. Damien Belliveau @damienbelliveau Sylvie's Love is an elegant, sincere, old-school romantic melodrama. Tessa Thompson & Nnamdi Asomugha are exceptional. Director Eugene Ashe is clearly a lover of classical hollywood cinema, apparent in the film's craftsmanship and narrative simplicity. A breath of fresh air. 07:26 AM - 05 Jan 2021 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @damienbelliveau 25. mekdese 🖤 @mekdesehaile 3 SLOW DANCIN ASS SCENES?! 😭 #SylviesWatchParty #SylviesLove 02:07 AM - 28 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @mekdesehaile Ready for a gentle tug at your heartstrings?
