Charming and wildly entertaining tale of wide-eyed and gay Elliot, at two different stages in life – an inquisitive 10-year-old boy and as an idealistic, 21–year–old searching for love in all the wrong places.
Awards & Quotes
“A real sleeper, Elliot Loves is poignant comedy-drama about the title character—a motor-mouthed Dominican growing up in New York City. The narrative toggles between Elliot as a kid struggling with his flaky mother and her deadbeat boyfriends, and Elliot as an adult emulating his mother by being attracted to the wrong guys. Deftly chronicling Elliot’s trials and tribulations as he searches for love and validation, this low-budget but heartfelt film directed by Terracino, is just like its title character—charming, rough around the edges and totally lovable.” – SF Bay Times
