Love Streams

1984 / 141min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: JOHN CASSAVETES

CAST: GENA ROWLANDS, JOHN CASSAVETES, DIAHNNE ABBOTT, SEYMOUR CASSEL

Cassavetes and Rowlands are Robert and Sarah—middleaged siblings who can’t get love right. “Love is a stream,” she says. “It’s continuous. It doesn’t stop.” “Love is everything,” he says as he tears off a check for a pair of prostitutes. “Is love an art?” she asks. Her psychiatrist says, “Your love is too strong for your family.” Sarah and Robert’s love for each other is the exception. It’s effortless, antic, forgiving, and pure.
