With eventual pay-cable showing in mind, Skye Blue's romantic porn feature "Love, Anonymous" errs on the side of sentimentality. But it's a well-acted couples film in the time-honored vein of so many soapers like "The Notebook".
In this case, a misplaced love letter is the plot catalyst, as baker Julia Ann's sister played by Charlotte Stokely has filed it away in her books stored with sis, and when other protagonists find the note it causes all sorts of confusion, each one thinking a paramour penned it.
The resulting romantic clinches (acted out in full XXX glory) and lover's spats are old hat, but satisfyingly old-fashioned for today's audience. Director Skye makes a variety of films ranging from bizarro (her Bizarre label fetish offerings in which she used to act as well) to friendly romances for the Wicked Passions label and previously for both Penthouse and Playgirl.
Looking as lovely as ever, Julia Ann carries the piece, alternately making love to her much younger assistant Tyler Nixon or to a reluctant beau, the local cop blandly played by Ryan McLane. Sis Stokely is predictably involved in an off-and-on lesbian relationship with the local teacher Bianca Breeze, while Nixon is two-timing with a sexy age-appropriate girlfriend Jade Nile. Just to add some bombastic sex to the pot we also get a humping contribution from Britney Amber, styled as a redhead for a change, hooking up with another bland character, Van Wylde.
In fact, Skye's feminist streak shows in having such strong female characters balanced by comparatively wimpy males. It's a lightweight diversion, but at least a well-crafted throwback to when porn features actually told a story - at one time A & E's most important product.
