Film: Love Streams
Sunday, February 11, 2007 - 6:00pm
In adapting Ted Allan's play, John Cassavetes dives headlong into issues concerning love and its complications. The story follows two seemingly unconnected individuals who are in the midst of personal crises. Robert Harmon (Cassavetes) is a successful writer who can't seem to control his libido; he fills his house with a rotating cast of attractive females in order to feel less lonely. Sarah Lawson (Gena Rowlands) is a fragile woman whose life begins to fall apart when her husband divorces her and retains custody of her daughter. In a series of events, Robert takes his young son Albie on a debauched trip to Las Vegas upon seeing him for the first time since his birth; he also tries to convince Sarah to love her own daughter just little bit less. John Cassavetes's last screen appearance as an actor, and last personal film as a director, is another challenging drama that tackles deeply profound questions without becoming heavy handed.
