This beloved feature debut by writer-director Gina Prince-Bythewood elevates the coming-of-age romance by exploring the challenges female athletes face in a world that doesn’t see them as equal. Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps make for an iconic screen couple as basketball-obsessed next-door neighbors who find love over flirtatious pickup games and drift in and out of each other’s lives as they pursue their twin aspirations of playing professionally. Love & Basketball captures the intoxicating passions, heartbreaking setbacks and sky-high ambitions that mark a young woman’s journey to the top of her game and to lasting love.
