One of the best--and most overlooked--films of our time.
Despite the incredibly short length of this film, it is perhaps the singular best film I have ever seen. The story is fairly simple, in and of itself, but the complex underlying theme is one which is prevalent within society, and also quintessentially portrayed within this film.
I was introduced to Diane Houston's film in a film course at a west coast university this past year. It made such an impression upon me that I have been trying to get my hands upon a copy since first having viewed it. I really cannot say enough about this film. The script is superb, the storyline is excellent, the acting is wonderful, and it would be a wonderful film to analyze within a film, sociology, women's studies, or human consciousness class. It is not only pertinent to the academic field, but I really urge all individuals of all ages and backgrounds to take the time to see it. If there is any way you can find a way to view it, do not miss the chance--it is such a treasure in the film industry.
