Storyline

Two lost souls: she a con-artist in L.A.; he a puppeteer in San Antonio have the same dream linking each with the other. He travels to L.A. to find this woman he has become obsessed with. She resists, afraid of his kooky ideas until she travels with him to San Antonio and meets his wise grandmother. Story of two disparate people linked by "fate" gets increasingly interesting as it rolls along. Written by Ed Lorusso

Goofs

Fletcher McBracken, after loosely and raggedly cutting out a women's picture, goes to throw it in a basket, and when it lands in the basket the cut out picture is perfectly and roundly trimmed right up to the image of the women. See more »

Quotes

Fletcher McBracken: Lemme ask you a question, Phil - and you don't have to answer it if you don't want to. D'you think that every last thread of intelligent life has chosen to huddle in either New York or LA? Or do you really believe that-that this soulless sinkhole has anything to do with real life humanity - namely integrity, compassion, dignity? Y'know what, don't answer that, Phil. Just lemme just give you some advice. Next time you're driving through Texas, you better stay clear of all the trailer parks. And ...

Beautiful
1 December 2003 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I absolutely LOVED this movie. The way it was filmed was so beautiful. It made me want to visit Texas. I was thrilled to see Joanna Going. She was on a soap opera I used to watch a looooong time ago. She is as beautiful as ever. The characters are believable. Joanna Going's character, Roz, is a con artist but instead of disliking her you feel sympathy for her. I would watch this movie again and again. The music weaves throughout the film and makes you feel good.
