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 »

Two movies in one, One very much worth seeing
20 June 2002 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

One has to admire Mark Kines for making a truly independent movie.

Unfortunately, the first story is a little weak and I agree that Melanie Lynskey is underutilized. She is supposed to have a boring life, but the vignette doesn't rise up to the challenge of making a boring life seem interesting to a viewer. However, Will Wheaton does have a great role as the awkward neighbor.

I understand the second story is loosely based on an incident in the director's life. It is unfortunate that this could not have been the subject of a full-length feature. Corin Nemic (of Parker Lewis Can't Lose fame) is great, and I'd like to see him again. Unknown Yelena Danova is also excellent. I really cared for the characters and those in supporting roles. Yelena's host parents are interesting and the Father has some unexpected character development. The hilarious and telling scene in a bookstore featuring Martin Mull is an added bonus. The secondary theme of Cultural Variations and how strange Americans can be to foreigners is expertly handled.

Overall it is a great first outing and I'd recommend it to any indie fans.
