True Love

True Love is anything but traditional, even though it's solidly rooted in the Bronx working-class Italian community. The bride (wonderfully played by newcomer Annabella Sciorra) and her bridesmaids know enough four-letter words to easily supply all the 'something blue' needed for the wedding preparations.

True Love is anything but traditional, even though it’s solidly rooted in the Bronx working-class Italian community. The bride (wonderfully played by newcomer Annabella Sciorra) and her bridesmaids know enough four-letter words to easily supply all the ‘something blue’ needed for the wedding preparations.

Sciorra and her friends aren’t too starry-eyed about the men available for matrimony. Certainly, her fiance (well-acted by Ron Eldard in his feature debut) is no bargain, except perhaps in bed. For most of the picture, Sciorra frets about why she’s marrying the immature, self-centered lout and never comes up with a good reason, except he’s good-looking and says he loves her even though he doesn’t act like it.

True Love is very much a story about family and neighborhood and Nancy Savoca obviously has an eye for the several generations. This is Savoca’s first feature, with first-rate perfomances out of neophytes.
