…this film does something different—it makes basketball intimate and extremely specific to the lives of the characters and their families. Therefore, it isn’t just a game they play in order to get a scholarship to college; it is a game that bonds them, while also pulling them apart.
— Nijla Mumin, Indiewire
Love & Basketball
From the time they were kids, Monica (Sanaa Wright) and Quincy (Omar Epps) were meant to be together. Over the course of two decades, they have an on-again-off-again relationship while pursuing their mutual dream careers in basketball. They play the same game and share the same dream. All is fair in love and basketball.
Directed by Gina Prince-Blythewood.
