Drummond Avery (Nick Nolte) is a state senator of an undisclosed state. The term of office and district represented are unknown. See more »
Senator Avery talks about going for his 8th term but this is impossible. Even assuming the shortest possible time in office (serving only one day of a vacated Senator's position as his first term plus 5 full terms of 6 years each and he is speaking on the first day of his 7th term) this equals 30 years and two days. He directly states he is 52 and you cannot become a Senator unless you are at least 30 meaning he must be an absolute minimum of 60 yeas and two days old. See more »

There seem to be two major demographics that film audiences fall into. The commercially reliable, and the more risky arthouse, or as Trixie would say, "but I see it the other way". "Trixie" falls into the arthouse, with its star, Emily Watson, fitting in perfectly to its offbeat nature. Watson has proven in her career, from "Breaking the Waves" to "Hilary and Jackie" that she is one of the most underrated and capable actresses in modern film. Following a "noir" mystery tale of murder, and political corruption, "Trixie" takes the cliches of a thriller and combines them skillfully with the creative tongue of the English-slaughtering lead character. For people who enjoy daring, open-minded pictures, "Trixie" is a fun way to spend an evening. For people who enjoy loud, explosion-packed films, go see them.
