Storyline

Blackeyes is an attempt to explore "what does go on between men and women in their heads, to show the possibilities of the ways that they see each other." Complex and multi-layered, the interweaving narrative threads include novelist Maurice James Kingsley who appropriates accounts by his niece Jessica about her life as a professional model. Kingsley's embellishments become a trashy bestseller, "Sugar Bush," tracing the rise and decline of fictional fashion model Blackeyes, victimized by men. Angry and betrayed, Jessica begins to rewrite Kingsley's novel to set Blackeyes free from the abuse of men. Written by Bhob Stewart <bhob@genie.com>

"was that really an orgasm?" (drone, drone, drone).
23 April 2002 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

quintessiantially: a very, very good television drama from dennis ('dirty den') potter. the very antiphossis from the leading lady of the title played by gina bellman is overwhelming in the extreme. it's also a poignant, heartfelt expose of the pangs of being single when we each in all our souls want something we constantly crave for. when you watch this milestone of great artistic achievement; please don't forget the box of kleenex to hold back the tears...
