Goofs

The license plates on the cars imply that the story supposedly takes place in Washington DC, but the skyline scenes do not look at all like Washington DC. For one thing, Washington has no high-rise office buildings or skyscrapers. See more »

The Movie I Recommend To Everyone
6 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the movie I always recommend to people when cool indie films come up. I saw it on IFC or something some random day when I was bored and channel surfing. I don't want to spoil the movie, suffice it to say that this is one of the most TRULY engaging films I've ever seen. The bill weaves through life, death, love, and loss. We see enough of each scene to connect with the players in each vignette before the bill glides to the next story. You may think that the movie is disjointed with no commonality, but this is not the case. This movie was made in a thoughtful way for thoughtful people and each story has the denouement we all crave! I've seen this movie a few times and am surprised that I have never purchased it.
