'Sylvie's Love' review: a charming but familiar love story with shades of 'La La Land'

In a week full of flux and turmoil, it’s nice to have some good movies to talk about on Breakfast All Day. Christy, Matt and Alonso review the covid heist comedy “Locked Down,” starring Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor; the swoony romantic throwback “Sylvie’s Love,” with Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha; and the fascinating documentary “MLK/FBI,” featuring declassified documents from J. Edgar Hoover’s investigation of Martin Luther King Jr. There’s SO much news, including Trump’s second impeachment and continued fallout from the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, Armie Hammer‘s alleged cannibalistic tendencies and a “Sex and the City” reboot sans Samantha. Over at our Patreon, we recap the first two episodes of the gleefully nostalgic new Disney+ series “WandaVision,” as well as episode 2 of “Bridgerton” on Netflix. And be on the lookout Monday for a bonus episode, where we’ll play catch up with a few more movies and share a bunch of marquees our listeners and viewers have sent. Thanks for sticking with us — we’ll get through this together!
