A Decision Day in the Ordinary Lives of Three Losers
12 September 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a poor and decadent area of Manhattan, the musician Kate (Sara Paul) visits a room in a shared apartment with the aspirant photographer Colleen (Lucy Knight) and the needy teenager Kacey (Erin Norris), decided to start living an independent normal life of her own. The alcoholic Colleen has made a decision and will leave her beloved daughter Stella (Maisy Hughes) later with a family since she can not afford to support the child. The bisexual Kacey is distributing fliers trying to find her dog TJ that was stolen by her ex-boyfriend Johnny while missing her girlfriend that dumped her to get married. Kate has just broken an incestuous relationship with her brother Stevie (Nikolai Voloshuk), but he can not accept the separation.

"A, B, C... Manhattan" is a surprisingly good little independent movie that tells "three of eight million stories" in Manhattan. The three dramatic stories in a day of decision in the ordinary lives of three losers are very unpleasant and sad, but the acting of the unknown Lucy Knight, Erin Norris, Sara Paul and the girl Maisy Hughes are top notch and full of feelings and emotions. The direction is also excellent and I liked the camera movements that give a great sensation of credibility to the film. This DVD was released in Brazil on February 15th 2006, i.e., nine years after the released date of the movie, and surprisingly I note and regret that Lucy Knight and Sara Paul have worked in two other movies only, and Erin Norris and the promising girl Maisy Hughes have not worked in the cinema anymore. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Mulheres de Manhattan" ("Women from Manhattan")
