this movie rocks
9 March 2003 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

This movie is played all the time on showtime, if you ever want to see it. Plus it is coming out on DVD (15,000) copies sometime soon. It is a beautiful story about complicated relationships both parental and romantic. Personally, I think Mili Avital did a beautiful job, as she always does, and I wish that i could see her more often in movies. She was once named most promising actress... but i haven't seen her in much. Well good luck Mili and see this movie, a solid independent film and moving story.
