FINALLY!!!! I am so excited to share this new trailer for the upcoming romantic drama Sylvie's Love starring Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha. It is written and directed by Eugene Ashe, produced by Asomugha and executive produced by Thompson and Sidra Smith. 

In Sylvie’s Love, the jazz is smooth and the air sultry in the hot New York summer of 1957. Robert (Asomugha), a saxophonist, spends late nights playing behind a less-talented but well-known bandleader, as member of a jazz quartet. Sylvie (Thompson), who dreams of a career in television, spends her summer days helping around her father’s record store, as she waits for her fiancé (Alano Miller) to return from war. When Robert takes a part-time job at the record store, the two begin a friendship that sparks a deep passion in each of them unlike anything they have felt before. As the summer winds down, life takes them in different directions, bringing their relationship to an end. Years pass, Sylvie’s career as a TV producer blossoms, while Robert has to come to terms with what the age of Motown is doing to the popularity of Jazz. In a chance meeting, Sylvie and Robert cross paths again, only to find that while their lives have changed, their feelings for each other remain the same. Writer/director Eugene Ashe combines romance and music into a sweeping story that brings together changing times, a changing culture, and the true price of love.

Sylvie's Love also stars Ryan Michelle Bathe, Aja Naomi King, Jemima Kirke, Tone Bell, Erica Gimpel and Lance Reddick with Wendi McLendon Covey and Eva Longoria.
