Product Description

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.

Theatrical Trailer

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

By Dave Schwartz VINE VOICE on December 12, 2006

Love, Ludlow is a great movie that is, at first glance, little more than a quirky, funny romantic comedy. There's nothing mindshakingly original about the premise of boy meets girl, but Reggie's awkward courtship of Myra is so over-the-top that it's quite fresh. Cinematic romance usually has a fairly predictable arc, but I never felt like I knew what was coming next with this movie.

Myra's character, I think, really anchored the film, and it was because of the strong performance by Alicia Goranson. Myra is an almost impossibly caustic office temp, and I think that a lesser actress might have me wondering how someone with such a firey disposition could work in a field that requires a modicum of working well with others. But Goranson plays Myra with such authority that it just seems natural,

Similarly, the shy, awkward Reggie (David Eigenberg) might have been played as a shallow caricature of a socially-inept dweeb, but Eigenberg creditably shows him to be an earnest, caring, somewhat confused guy trying his best to win what might be the girl of his dreams.

The movie starts with Reggie being smitten with Myra, and Myra's gradual opening to the possibility of dating him. Myra's brother Ludlow is the big complication. He seems to spend most of his time in he and Myra's tiny apartment writing elaborate fairwell notes and fingerpainting.

According to the movie's description, Ludlow is bipolar. I'm no diagonstician, but he seemed a bit more autistic to me-his moods seemed fairly even, but he had definite problems interfacing with the rest of the world and accepting a break in his routine.

If ever there was an overlooked film, Love, Ludlow would be that film. Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival is a fantastic way to shed some light on some fantastic overlooked films, but I was semi-disappointed that this film did not attract his attention. Not that the films that he screened weren't fantastic, but I think this one could have attracted a larger audience with the right marketing. After appearing at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival and becoming an Official Selaction, Love, Ludlow disappeared, away from the public and critic alike. Sitting lonely on the shelf of the video store I work at, the only copy of Love, Ludlow seemed overshadowed by the big market (and often nauseating) blockbusters that litter the shelves. The film's director is Adrienne Weiss, who takes her second, and supremely successful, shot at directing. As the director is virtually unknown, she uses actors that aren't really prime time. Many may recognize David Eigenberg from HBO's Sex and the City, and many others may recognize Alicia Goranson from the hit 90's series Roseanne. Goranson is Myra, a twentysomething temp, working for a small corporation in New York, and washing some of local tenants' laundry so she can support herself and her brother Ludlow (Brendan Sexton III), who is mentally challenged and was left to her keeping after the death of their mother. Eigenberg is Reggie, a co-worker of Myra's, who becomes attracted to her angry, Bronx-girl personality. They begin to date, and we begin to see Ludlow feeling like a third wheel in the relationship. Although we feel bad for Ludlow, we certainly cannot expect Myra staying single just to spend every waking moment with Ludlow. Ludlow begins to act out, taking Reggie's keys and making him pay forty dollars, and spend the night to get them back.Read more ›

With "Love, Ludlow" David Lord Patterson (son of the woman who wrote "Bridge to Terabithia") crafts a short and sweet film that bubbles with quirky, snappy dialogue. But this movie isn't just a cute little romantic comedy. A strong dramatic undercurrent about loneliness, family, and growing up is the true core of this movie, sustained by the sheer normalness of the leading actors Alicia Goranson (Myra) and David Eigenberg (Reggie) and the total eccentricity played wonderfully by Brendan Sexton III (Ludlow). Equipped with Patterson's masterful writing, they bring us three funny and sympathetic characters that, I guarantee, you will end up caring about by the end of this ninety minute film.

There aren't many movies I can compare this to, as it's simply such a unique gem in an otherwise bland and overdone genre. To give you a sense of what this movie is like, I'm going to have to pick and choose from different mediums and genres. If you like the dialogue in Joss Whedon's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", you'll find the witty exchanges in here priceless. If you like the outrageous and endearing characters in Christopher Moore's books, you'll make a place in your heart for Ludlow. If you like sweet, weird, and real romances of the late "Veronica Mars" television series, you'll be rooting for Myra and Reggie. If you're in the mood for a nicely done independent film that will surely make you laugh and just might make you cry, give this not-very-well-known film a chance.

I saw this film at the Sundance Film Festival. It is a quirky love story filled with laughter and tears. Alicia (Myra) did a great job. Her facial expressions are so funny. All of the actors are right on. The tension between Ludlow and the other characters is so real. The writing is brilliant. If you like independent films, this is a great one!
