User Reviews

an intense and socially cognizant film about the inadequacies that partners are faced with in dysfunctional relationships.
10 October 1999 | by (Los Angeles, California USA) – See all my reviews

Billy(Steven Nelson), a young and lonely stage performer, falls in love with a troubled and temperamental older woman, Gloria(Honey Lauren), who has a drinking problem. His obsession with her, and women's in general, gender identification, causes him to put his faith in her alleged "wisdom," and "experience" with life. Gloria's cousin Lydia (played by Jeri Ryan) comes to visit, declining to share any ulterior motives until the movie's end. Suspicion and jealousy keep the two cousins distant, until an act of love by Billy for Gloria, meant to cause the death of Lydia, brings them all briefly together in sympathy, if not understanding, of one another's emotional suffering. This does not last long, as an alcoholic's suspicion, a spoiled girl's pride, and a boy's alienation from everyone he's loved restores the walls between them. I loved this film; there are very adult scenes, and very adult subjects introduced during this film, but they are entirely essential. the film also addresses topics such as emotional boundaries, self-respect, pride and desire, and ambition.
