I vividly remember the very first time I saw this about 15 years ago. I was NOT well! This is a chilling expose' on the potential pitfalls of excessive denial. It follows the exploits of a down-trodden actress who is obviously behind on just about everything but most importantly, her telephone bill. There are only about 4 people in the whole film, Whoopi, Elliott Gould, his blond companion, and the telephone man.
This would be an eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeexcellent Twilight Zone episode because the first time I watched it, I was completely taken aback by the ending.
This is a wooooooooooooooooonderful showcase for that sorely under-appreciated talent that is Whoopi. It is intense, surprising, poignant, heartbreaking, and laugh-out-loud funny.
