Nick is a feckless television salesman who gets fired and impulsively decides that he and his girlfriend, Beth, will move to Butte, MT, which he's read is "the city of the future." "I read that a while ago, so the future should be there by now," he enthuses. He waits until the last moment to tell Carol, his ex and Beth's best friend, about the move. While Nick is working his last day, Sid comes to the couple's house to paint it for the next tenants. He quickly develops an interest in Beth. He, Beth, and Carol get stoned and hang out. When Sid hears about the move, he tells Beth that he's never left Enfield, and has no interest in traveling. Meanwhile, Nick decides to take off on his own. When Beth gets word of this from Carol, she finds solace in Sid's arms. Sid proclaims his love the next morning, and implores Beth to stay. Meanwhile, Nick visits his childhood home, looking for his parents, has an epiphany, and decides to return to Carol. Written by
In the end credits there is a special thanks to Harvey Keitel. He was not involved in the movie as such, but he made a very important phone call to Tim Roth. Roth had been offered a big and well paid part in a big budget film immediately before this low budget independent film was to begin shooting. Harvey Keitel made a phone call to Roth, giving him the following advice "Don't take the money. Take the film you really want to make". So Roth stayed with this project. See more »
You've lived here all your life?
Traveling has no allure for me... only through time.
That's not offered.
Hey, Beth-- leave it behind.
Leave what behind?
Come hold me, and you'll be happy.
That's bullshit. I'm sorry Sid but you have to find happiness in your self.
That's wrong. People tell you that. But that's wrong.

I found the plot of the movie very character driven. Instead of give a plot it gave a lot of emphasis on how each character felt. No one really changed in the movie, situations just changed. I liked the style of the movie because it felt very real. The movie moved along at a steady enough pace, with a mellow tone the whole time. The ending was less than revealing and everything was left how it started, somewhat out of place.
