Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
After making his name directing a number of high-profile music videos and the award-winning Jane's Addiction rockumentary Three Days, filmmaker Carter B. Smith made his feature debut with this ensemble film about several New Yorkers dealing with life in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. With a cast featuring The Sopranos' Drea de Matteo, Love Rome is divided into four vignettes covering different ways average Gotham residents were affected by the tragedy and the ensuing war. Documentary footage of the city fills the gaps between each segment.
