Somewhat dated portrayal of a woman in the 80's
6 November 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Melanie Mayron portrays Susan Weinblatt, a struggling photographer trying to come to terms with the loss, through marriage, of her best friend and the complexities of dating in the 80's. Mayron gives a very believable performance which lightens an otherwise dreary plot.
