    Writer/Director Terracino’s feature debut concerns Elliot, a gay Dominican- American young man, handsome and charismatic, but unlucky in love. He can’t seem to hold down a relationship for more than a few weeks. The problem isn’t due to a lack of effort on his part — Elliot falls in love easily and devotes himself entirely to his male companions. Why is it, then, that none of the hunky guys that he attracts seem to desire the same level of commitment? As Elliot’s heart is repeatedly broken in the present, the film flashes back to situations in the past that fueled his need for a dependable partner. “Elliot Loves” delivers a consistent optimism that stays true to the characters and a refreshingly light-hearted touch.
