Love Comes Lately
Octogenarian writer Max Kohn (Otto Tausig) is either wildly imaginative or sadly demented. His long-suffering lady friend Reisel (Rhea Perlman) has become used to his frequent absences -- both mental and physical. Max regularly embarks on book tours, but his flights and fantasies are of dubious authenticity. Is nubile Sylvia (Olivia Thirlby) really attracted to him? Has his student Rosalie (Barbara Hershey) actually come to terms with her feelings for him? How will Max finish his new story?
- "Fear of intimacy trumps fear of death in Love Comes Lately, filmmaker Jan Schtte's plaintively effective merging of three Isaac Bashevis Singer short stories."
- "One of the best compliments to be paid a movie based on fiction is that it compels you to read other things by the author. Love Comes Lately is likely to elicit such a response."
- "A film that might be called stubbornly magical."
