He first seemed to pictures of his circle of relatives from the 1950s and the way completely happy they had been for inspiration. Eugene famous that regardless of his relations residing in a tumultuous political time, they carried themselves with love and dignity. This additional impressed him to create a movie with out the political lens Hollywood leans into across the Civil Rights Period.

This isn’t to say in Sylvie’s Love that historical past has been disrupted, however relatively, the main focus is on the happiness and slice-of-life journey of Black individuals relatively than their trials and tribulations. In an interview with Afropunk, Eugene says, “I actually cherished that period, even Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X discovered the time to get married and have infants, you understand? However the one time [Black people] are depicted in that period it’s at all times concerning the Civil Rights Motion.”

What does this imply for Robert and Sylvie’s characters? Regardless of their extraordinarily real looking and relatable love story, sadly, there isn’t any proof the pair are something however completely fictitious. The craftsmanship and layers that go into their characters makes them really feel like they might be all too actual, which speaks volumes to the proficient writing workforce’s laborious work.
