Interesting film but a little shaky.
20 June 2000 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

The thing that attracted me to this film in the first place is its star Tara Subkoff who has had mostly small supporting roles throughout her career. With the exception of her co-starring role in the film "All Over Me" this is her biggest part to date and she is a rather fascinating young actress to watch. The scene in which she splashes water over her face in the bathroom while Land Of The Loops' Multi Family Garage Sale plays in the background shows how beautiful her performance is without her even having to utter one word. She has an amazing presence that keeps this somewhat shaky film watchable. The soundtrack though somewhat quirky at times is really important to the overall tone the filmakers are trying to capture. If you like indie music and Tara Subkoff then this is a must see.
