"Steeped in the bohemian cool of Chicago's 1990s Black creative scene, love jones--the smart, sexy, and stylish debut feature of writer-director Theodore Witcher--is a love story for anyone who has ever wondered: How do I know when I've found the one? Larenz Tate and Nia Long have magnetism and chemistry to burn as the striving, artistically talented twentysomethings--he's a poet, she's a photographer--who spark over their love of literature and jazz, but whose mutual reluctance to commit to a relationship leaves them both navigating an emotional minefield of confusion, jealousy, and regrets. Velvety cinematography; an unforgettable, eclectic soundtrack; sophisticated dialogue; and refreshingly low-key, naturalistic performances by an ensemble cast that also includes Isaiah Washington, Lisa Nicole Carson, Bill Bellamy, come together in an intoxicating, seductively moody romance that engages both the heart and the mind."--Container.


Originally released as a motion picture in 1997.
