Here is a teenage version of the legendary star-crossed love between Tristan and Iseult. Caitlin Davies portrays Izzy, a white girl whose family has recently moved to Brooklyn, and Ryan Vincent Anderson portrays Trinidadian-American chess prodigy Tristan, whose guardian aunt has deep roots in the neighborhood. Their love is kindled when Izzy, an aspiring doctor, treats Tristan's sprained ankle. Voices ringing with earnestness make the lyrical text sound natural. Despair mingles with tender tones as Tristan's cousin Marcus, a small-time gangster, tries to woo Izzy. Enter Cynthia Farrell's Brianna, a Latina with an accented voice and a searingly intense tone. When Brianna speaks, you know the wheels of fate are about to spin as her friendship with Izzy and love for Marcus collide. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
