Jonny Lee Miller,
Victor is a cook who works in a greasy bar/restaurant owned by his mother, Dolly. It's just the two of them, a waitress named Delores, and a heavy drinking regular, Leo. But things change when Callie, a beautiful college drop-out, shows up as a new waitress and steals Victor's heart. But Victor is too shy to do anything about it, and too self-consciously overweight to dream of winning Callie away from her demanding boyfriend, Jeff. Victor's terrible loneliness overwhelms him when he has to face losing what he loves the most. Written by

Victor is walking across a bridge toward the camera with a bag of groceries in one arm and just before he stops to look over the side, a fuzzy mike cover can be seen briefly in the bottom left corner of the shot. See more »

A Sad Film That Deals With A Shy Man Dealing With Lost Loves.
"Victor" works in up state New York at a small bar/diner. He is painfully shy, depending to a great extent, on his mother's care and direction. A new waitress, played by Liv Tyler, is hired. Victor is charmed by her kindness and looks. Pruitt Taylor Vince gives a fine performance as "Victor". Shelley Winters plays Dolly, his mother. Debbie Harry is great as Delores, a co-worker who seems to have a chip on her shoulder. This movie tries to provide a meaningful character study and, for the most part, succeeds. I cared for the characters and felt that I knew them well. The problem is that Victor does not progress. He talks very little and I felt that the answers were very slow in coming. It was a frustration sometimes. Even so, Heavy provides us with a film that will stay with you. I gave it a 7 of 10. Good direction by and script by James Mangold. A memorable sound track that fits the film well.
