‘Sylvie’s Love’ Stars Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha on Capturing the Magic of Classic Romantic Movies

Much like its “will they, won’t they” plotline, the road to release for “Sylvie’s Love” has been its own brand of love rollercoaster. From filming on beaches and soundstages in Los Angeles (doubling as New York) to launching the film with a COVID-safe, yet romantic drive-in premiere in Malibu, Calif., stars Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha, and writer-director Eugene Ashe share how they pulled off the classic romance amid modern challenges.

“You’ve got to understand how difficult it is to make a movie. It’s extremely difficult, especially an independent film, when you don’t have a studio backing [it],” Asomugha tells Variety. “It’s a bit of a miracle that we’re at this point. Now, there’s a chance to sit back and see how it touches people’s lives.”

At its heart, “Sylvie’s Love” is a love story for the purists — a tale of boy (Robert, played by Asomugha) meets girl (Thompson as the titular Sylvie). They share a summer romance, circumstances tear them apart, before fate brings them back into each other’s lives.
