It was hard for me to remember the last truly romantic movie I had seen. I always go back to John Crowley’s Brooklyn, which was in 2015. That means it has been a full five years since a movie has projected any true romance on the big screen. Maybe that is what the world has been missing? Love, sweet, sweet love. It all arrives, just in time for valentines day, in the darling film The Photograph, directed by Stella Meghie and starring chameleon actors LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae. It involves two stories of love, one in the past, another in the present, and how we navigate life to make the love last. The Photograph is a snapshot to keep. A beautiful representation of what it’s like to fall in love, between two gentle souls, and not letting the past project your future.
