authentic "indie"
18 December 2002 | by (san diego) – See all my reviews

An honest-to-God American road movie on a nail clip budget. Edie Falco (the Addiction,Judy Berlin,Oz,Sopranos,et al) plays a nihilistic post-feminist drifter with stunning honesty. The supporting cast & crew are clearly up to the task as well. A riveting effort.
