"Sylvie's Love" also features unexpected performances by actors Eva Longoria ("Desperate Housewives") in a supporting, but important role to the story; Erica Gimple (you may remember her from the "Fame" television series) and MC Lyte (yes, that's right! MC Lyte - the rap and hip-hop artist of New York City early 80s/90s fame).
Other standouts are actors Aja Naomi King, Jemima Kirke, Alano Miller and Ryan Michelle Bathe as well as Lance Reddick, ("The Wire") who plays Mr. Jay.
A strong shout-out goes out to the hair and make-up team as well as the music, cinematography, production and costume design.
Note: Mr. Ashe also wrote the screenplay. Ms. Thompson served as an Executive Producer of the project. Mr. Asomugha served as one of the producers of the film as well.
