A deeply emotional and detailed insight into the lives of two very real, different yet remarkably similar lives.
1 March 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

First time director L Alan Fraser captures the real life differences of two seemingly ordinary people with remarkable force, accuracy and poignancy. The magic of the film lies not in these differences, rather how they connect on a human level via said differences. The film proves itself as a challenge not only to the director but to the actors as well. The script is based primarily around the dialogue between Matt (Christian Campbell) and Evelyn (Jonelle Allen). Both Christian and Jonelle conjured up just the right amount of energy and feeling to expose their characters in a riveting manner over the course of several contiguous Saturday nights in an inner city LA laundromat. These nights are the canvass on which the problems of inner city life are painted, embodied as a collection of troubled souls drawn into the laundromat for whatever reason. Ultimately, their friendship must stand the test of the society around them regardless of the fact that Matt is a 19 year old white kid just off the bus from Ohio drawn to LA for questionable personal reasons, and Evelyn is a black 30-something grandmother with real life problems of family and love. An original through and through.
