Sophie Ballantine Hawkins has a new fan. Me.
8 April 2001 | by (Western Mass.) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie on the Sundance Channel while channel surfing. I missed the 1st ten minutes but I didn't care... I was glued to it until the very end. I was amazed at how talented she is, since I have only heard her 2 hit songs on the radio and they never really did much for me. But now I feel I know her a little better - she is a free spirit, very zany at times, GREAT BOD, writes most of her material, and like all of us she has her share of skeletons in her closet. I can't figure out her sexuality and I would really like to know what her story is (I have an idea) but I guess the PC thing would be to say that "it's nobody's business but her own" blah, blah, blah - a la Jodie Foster. Still, it is a very intriguing side of her. She is a likable enigma. And Gigi Gaston did a terrific job in her first documentary outing. Well worth seeing.
