'love jones'

Scene from this movie Often funny love story between young, aspiring writer Darius Lovehall and budding photographer Nina Mosley. But itís obvious the director Theodore Witcherís real passion here is to paint the scenery and backdrop he knows well -- the social lives of young, educated, creative African Americans.

The love affair between Darius and Nina is rendered with less passion. Part of what pushes us away is the tentative, on-and-off nature of the relationship. This isnít an up close and personal love story as much as a yarn about the difficulty of connecting. -- Esther Iverem
