'Love Etc.' Premieres on OWN Documentary Club, 2 February

by Marisa Carroll

2 February 2012

 

A feather-light, engaging documentary, Love Etc. charts the evolutions of five romantic relationships in New York over the course of a year. Director Jill Andresevic selected a cross section of lovers from three boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens) in various stages of their lives, all affable and all inclined to colorful self-expression. The film—which premieres on Oprah’s OWN Documentary Club on 2 February—features interviews shot in the subjects’ homes. As they discuss their pleasures and challenges. In other situations, they’re liable to perform a bit for the camera. They tell stories of ups and downs, though we don’t see anything too ugly or upsetting. With more than 500 hours of footage, it seems unlikely that none of it captured a difficult moment, so one can’t help wondering whether or why Andresevic chose not to include them.
