Looking for Love(1)

By MEGAN GRUMBLING  |  April 4, 2013

Love/Sick portrays relationships at a range of stages and states, with both straight and gay couples (that the homosexual couples are presented without any special comment is immensely refreshing). As a result, its appeal is broad if not particularly deep. Love/Sick is a charmingly and entertainingly light survey of some of our deeper anxieties about love, both healthy and otherwise. ^
