Trivia

Was originally planned as a 50-minute film centered around the "Dear Jenny" storyline. Realizing the impossibilities of selling and distributing a 50-minute film, the director wrote the second segment ("Love, Trevor") which filled out the story to feature length. See more »

Film has many levels of substance
25 January 2000 | by (Menlo Park, California) – See all my reviews

On the surface, this is a story of young people who are battling loneliness. But it's also the story of getting past pretense, of finding out who a person really is. It deals with fooling oneself, and fooling others. There's a rather humorous undertone of how foreigners view Americans, and vice versa. During the story, some of the characters develop, and some don't. Those who don't develop seem to prefer deluding themselves, in order to protect their hearts from a world of hurt. I recommend that you go see the movie, if you can!
