Storyline

This drama takes the form of a story told using documentary material as an intrinsic part of the narrative. In this journey through the dark side of 1950s urban life, the camera follows Judith - a newly divorced woman looking for a fresh start - through the streets of Los Angeles as she encounters the strange denizens of the city, ranging from trendsetters to religious fanatics. All the tawdry and desperate faces of this world become a mirror for Judith's personal failures and struggles to claim her new life. Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

Amazingly realistic depiction of life after divorce
7 January 2001 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

One of cinematographer Haskell Wexler's earliest efforts that unabashedly reflects the influence of Edward Hopper and depressing street scenes. Barbara Baxley's heartfelt "everywoman" performance is nothing short of amazing. The supporting cast, led by Herschel Bernardi, is also magnificent. THe funny thing about this chronolgue of American hopelessness is that it is much better known in the European Art House circuit than here among the US indy crowd. It definitely should get more exposure; I give it 10 out of 10.
