Love and Other Sorrows is a 2011 film from director Harold Brodkey. It is set in the summer of the late 1950s in the big city of St. Louis. This movie follows the character of Ben (Stephen Mailer), who is a sixteen year old boy who is searching for love. He wants his summer to be a great one, and to be full of first dates, kisses and hopefully love. The story is told through the eyes of Ben. Ben's family is small, and Ben's sister is getting ready to get married. His mother though, stresses the need for Ben's sister to marry a nice young man. His sister is engaged to a very rich, and very nice man, but she can't seem to fall in love with his charms. This movie couples Ben's sister's reluctance to marry a perfect man with Ben's search for his first love and marries the two topics beautifully.
