Thoughtful meditation on gender, genre in a bank-robber-on-the-run story.
I thought this was a very nice meditation on genre, gender, and a very professionally shot "indie" film about a woman who is finding her her own identity - and what she's capable of.
All wrapped up in a bank-robber/on-the-run-from-the-law story, the guy isn't very interesting; it's all about the woman (Moira Kelly). Sure she falls in love with him...or maybe the idea of being in love and on the run. A smart script, nice elliptical thematic touches to keep things moving on a more "conceptual" level.
The other comments that note there is no "plot" miss the point. It's about her "movement" - through space, down the road, and into a state of understanding.
I hope this person makes more movies.
