In the outside world Myra (Goranson) is a sharp-tongued, hard-working temp. At home in Queens, however, she lovingly devotes herself to the needs of her eccentric younger brother Ludlow (Sexton), an aspiring finger painter confined to the apartment because of manic episodes. When Myra begins to explore an office romance with the endearingly bashful Reggie (Eigenberg) a comedic tug of war for Myra's affection rages as Ludlow sets out to destroy the budding relationship.
Based on the play Finger Painting in a Murphy Bed, Love, Ludlow is as gently humorous as it is sweetly romantic. Myra (Alicia Goranson, Roseanne) has built her life around her emotionally disturbed brother, Ludlow (Brendan Sexton III, who starred with Goranson in Boys Don't Cry). Other than model airplanes, Reggie (David Eigenberg, Sex and the City) doesn't really have a life. An only child, he grew up in a small town and never had any close relationships. As a result, he's always felt different from everyone else, especially since he moved to New York. Myra works as a temp at his place of employment and Reggie's been trying to get to know her, but she always responds with sarcasm. Granted, his jokes are pretty corny, but he senses a spark, and the guy's no quitter. One day he asks her out to dinner. To his surprise, she says yes. "I'm a little nonplussed," he admits. "If that means I gotta pay, then no," Myra responds. (He assures her it doesn't.) Little does he know her brother's got Myra beat in the sarcasm department. Ever since their mother died, Ludlow has become accustomed to having his sister all to himself and isn't about to give her up without a fight. Thing is, Reggie's a lover, not a fighter. Or is he? Ludlow will force him to prove otherwise, just as Reggie will force the feisty Myra to prove whether she has what it takes to be a lover. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
We really enjoyed the movie. It was both sad and sweet! I was surprised by the R rating because it did not deserve that rating (should be PG13)Published on March 17, 2013 by Vicki Mahoney
I like the actors and the attitude of the main leading lady. She had very good lines. I gave this movie four starts because the acting was good and believable. Read morePublished on October 11, 2012 by Butterfly 411
A slightly screwy love affair, between a man, a woman and the woman's autistic brother (I don't mean in the incestuous, three-way way).
