Judith Nelson quit her medical studies to marry. Years later, her husband, a physician, divorces her to be with another doctor. Deeply frustrated, she now lives alone in her luxury apartment in New York, looking for a new meaning for her life. Pat Francato, the janitor and lift-boy, has a troubled life himself: Gambling debts and the tragic death of his daughter took away all his spirit. One day, he and Judith meet in the right mood and a fragile friendship starts to grow. They can help each other to get on their feet again. But one false move could destroy everything they built so carefully.Written by

The news clip that Judith is watching at the beginning shows a badly damaged apartment building, as we hear the newscaster speaking about possible terrorist bombings. This image was actually from an October 1992 airplane crash, where an El Al 747 cargo jet crashed into an Amsterdam apartment complex, killing 43. See more »

I saw this film years ago with my parents. I wasn't thrilled to be going to see a movie about a woman whose husband leaves her and she thus has to find herself.
But I was shocked when I saw the film and realized just how original it really is. There have been many films that have featured the same material as this film, however "Living Out Loud" is such an original take on a genre of film that has been overdone.
Queen Latifah made her mark in quality acting with this film. In my opinion, she deserved the Oscar nomination more for this film than she did for "Chicago". She brought life to the film, and her characters story is a movie in itself.
Even the cheesiest scene in the film is fun to watch. Holly Hunter begins to dance, while everyone dances in sequence to her behind her. However, this action fits in the film and with the character. For some reason it's beleiveable that she would actually do soemthing like this.
I really do think people should go out and rent this little seen movie. It's worth the money and time.
