Tuesday’s Overlooked: Love & Basketball (2000)

This week’s selection has been mentioned previously on my blog but never at great length. It is the 2000 Sundance fan-favorite Love & Basketball, directed by Gina Bryce-Bythewood (P.S. We need to see much more of her)! This film has everything I need as both self-confessed tomboy who loves sports and as one who appreciates a great love story. Add to that a jamming soundtrack and this is a movie I will not soon ever forget – even to this day.

The film covers the 20-year relationship between Monica (Sanaa Lathan) and Quincy (Omar Epps), who share a love and passionate rivalry for basketball and find their lives inexorably linked as a result.

Check out the trailer here:

  1. I agree as well. I have cleared out a bunch of my old DVDs but this is one that retained.
