‘Sylvie’s Love’ trailer has been released.
Amazon Prime Video dropped the official trailer for the romantic drama on Wednesday, featuring Tessa Thompson as the titular character, Sylvie.
Set in 1960s New York, ‘Sylvie’s Love’ follows the romance between Sylvie (Thompson), a young woman working at her father’s record store, and Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha), a jazz musician.
The trailer shows Sylvie and Robert fall in love with each other one summer but ultimately part ways.
‘Sylvie’s Love’ premiered at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and earned rave reviews from fans and critics alike. The film hits Amazon Prime on Christmas Day.
Amazon Prime Video’s official synopsis reads: “Robert (Asomugha), a saxophonist, spends late nights playing behind a less-talented but well-known bandleader as member of a jazz quartet. Sylvie (Thompson), who dreams of a career in television, spends her summer days helping around her father’s record store, as she waits for her fiancé to return from war. When Robert takes a part-time job at the record store, the two begin a friendship that sparks a deep passion in each of them, unlike anything they have felt before.”
“As the summer winds down, life takes them in different directions, bringing their relationship to an end. Years pass, Sylvie’s career as a TV producer blossoms, while Robert has to come to terms with what the age of Motown is doing to the popularity of Jazz. In a chance meeting, Sylvie and Robert cross paths again, only to find that while their lives have changed, their feelings for each other remain the same.”
Apart from Thompson and Nnamdi, the film also stars Ryan Michelle Bathe, Aja Naomi King and Eva Longoria.
‘Sylvie’s Love’ is written and directed by Eugene Ashe. The film will begin streaming from Dec. 25 on Amazon Prime Video.
