Quirky, involving movie ...
22 March 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 10/8/1999 - 6 out of 10(Dir-Alex Graves): Quirky, involving movie that follows the life of an unhappy married woman without a child.The director only hints at where the story is going which is most of the fun with following this movie.Slow moving at first but the uncertainty keeps you interested.
