Storyline

Jane and Will are familiar faces on the Los Angeles club scene. They meet officially at drug rehab after Jane OD'ed and Will crashed her motorcycle driving stoned. They hit it off immediately and escape the clinic to travel to Montana and find the bike from Easy Rider. Different from most road movies in that no'one gets murdered and no vengeance is reaped. On the contrary, the characters let their pasts and memories lead them down the road to emotional self-destruction. In other words there is no seductive emancipation here, just people with problems that won't go away with a rev of a motor. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

A beautifully simple story about the friendship of two women
18 May 1999 | by (Amherst, MA) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie about a woman who finally comes to terms with who she is at the age of thirty. It chronicles the journey of two women who meet in a clinic after drug related incidents. It was touching to see a film about a strong friendship between two women who appear to be tough on the outside but are actually very emotionally fragile.

Even though the characters are very specifically blond, female, motorcycle-riding drug users there is something in them that speaks of the easily-bruised emotions in all of us. The glimpses behind the scenes of how a person might turn to a destructive life-style were also very revealing.

In the end, it takes the death of the younger woman, Jane, to make Will realize that she is actually luckier than some and that she does have the strength to survive, and to open up her heart to the genuine emotions she has found in a man who loves her. Despite the tragedy of losing a friend she has grown so close to, the end is uplifting both for Will and the audience. Though she has reached the end of their journey physically alone, the spirit and memory of Jane will always be with her, reminding her of how much she has to live for.
