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 »
"Foreign Correspondents" tells two short stories back to back with a clumsy attempt at the end of the second to dovetail it into the first. Both have annoyingly indecisive protagonists so don't look for any heroics. Both remain unresolved at the end which some will find unsatisfying. Both are sufficiently lacking in complexity as to require plenty of filler; inconsequential stuff which doesn't add impetus to the plot. Nonetheless, for a low budget indie, the first story is surprisingly compelling and the second is surprisingly engaging. "FC" should be a moderately enjoyable watch for indie lovers into drama. (C)
