A really great film. Saw it at a film festival. LOVED IT
23 September 1999 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

why hasn't this movie been released in theaters? It stars Alan Boyce and Khandi Alexander and is a romantic love story between a white boy,(Alan Boyce), and a black girl(Khandi Alexander), who rock the others world despite the vast differences in the others world. Khandi Alexander is so fine and funny, and the same for the studly Alan Boyce. This is one movie that Hollywood is missing the boat on. Damn someone should see the green in the bank with the release of this movie. They're both damn good actors and I wish I would see more of both of them on the screen. The BIG screen that is.
