Trivia

Most of the dialogue was improvised by the cast, who were given extraordinary creative control over their own characters, even drawing straws to determine which of their characters would die in the story. Director Linda Yellen said, "I never believed this would be accepted commercially." Co-star Jill Eikenberry said filming was like a "week-long therapy session." See more »

Exquisite rendering of female friendship and love
5 November 1998 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I first saw this in 1993 when it had just been released on video. Since then, my obsessive tendencies have lead me to see this film upwards of 100 times. I now own it, because I wore out my local video store's copy. The actresses have created something truly special in their vignettes about love, life and death. My hat is off to them all.
