Legendary Hollywood leading man Sidney Poitier (Lilies of the Field, The Wilby Conspiracy) and Broadway sensation Abbey Lincoln (Nothing But a Man) sizzle in this hip, bold, stylish and sexy romance. Boasting an all-star supporting cast, including Beau Bridges (The Landlord) and Carroll O'Connor (All in the Family) – and a jazzy musical score by the incomparable Quincy Jones (They Call Me Mister Tibbs!) – For Love of Ivy is a one-of-a-kind love story and irresistible romantic comedy. When high-rolling hustler Jack Parks (Poitier) is blackmailed into seducing a client's naive young housekeeper, love is the last thing on his mind. But Jack has never met anyone like Ivy Moore (Lincoln)... and as he begins to fall for her, she discovers the truth about the player. Directed by veteran filmmaker Daniel Mann (Butterfield 8, Our Man Flint).
