Love and basketball an overview
Love and basketball cast
Cast and crew adapted from AllRovi. Lathan starring as Monica Wright. Which kind of added to my anxiety about the whole thing and definitely looking up to her as the lead and trying to learn from her That people of all races were able to see this love story and embrace it, not as a black film, but as a love story first. That becomes taxing after a few hours and then going to lunch and then getting right back at it. It took 13 takes because I kept beating Sanaa to the ball. Quincy agrees and wins, but can no longer be apart from Monica and chooses her instead. We had like a five-minute standing ovation. While basketball served as the main backdrop for the film, and told the story of a black couple, everyone agreed that the movie broke through barriers, appealing to just about anyone, yet embraced especially by athletes and women. So there was a great camaraderie. His family rushes to the hospital to be with him, but his now divorced parents still have bad blood when they see each other. Monica's reasoning is that the if he loses it would be because he let her win which would mean that deep down he really doesn't want to get married because he still loves her. At this point Monica and Quincy are still together. So these two were on these parallel tracks, really in my mind it was between these two.
One night they both just so happened to have an impotant basketball game on the same night. He said he could play ball and then I also put him with a trainer, the assistant coach at UCLA at the time.
Having left USC after his freshman season, Quincy is now in his fifth year in the pros. She is dope.
It's honest and perceptive about love and sex, with no phony drama and a certain quiet maturity. I loved it and I told Mike he needed to read it and he liked it a lot and then we basically said we want to make this movie.
Sanaa Lathan is the discovery.
Monica also falls into the usual squabbles with her mother Camille. Flash forward to Monica goes for a score, Quincy pushes her, and she gets a little scar that will be on her right cheek for the rest of her life.
On screen was the heartbreak and passion of sports and love -- with some strip basketball and a beautiful game of one-on-one thrown in for good measure. In addition, they also share a passion for basketball, and that presents a problem for them every season.
The fourth quarter of the story follows the characters through the early s, a few years before the establishment of the WNBA.
So these two were on these parallel tracks, really in my mind it was between these two. Inwhen she's about 12, her family moves into a new house in Baldwin Hills, a good Los Angeles neighborhood.
