Storyline

A boozing, recently widowed young woman gives every one she comes into contact with a hard time. Initially, the viewer is led to believe that her attitude is because of the death of her husband in a motorcycle accident. However, it grows clearer as the film progresses that she just generally has a bitchy attitude about life. She moves back home with her in-laws, where she is pursued by a nice young grocer. However, his mother recognizes her as a heart breaker and warns him away and battles with her. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

A very impressive independent film.
1 December 1999 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

I've seen Valerie Flake twice now at screenings, and was very pleasantly surprised the first time, and equally entertained the second. The performances are wonderful without exception, and the direction is very accomplished. This is especially so considering the no doubt abbreviated shooting schedule on a $500,000 budget. While I had a few small problems with the ending, I was unable to find any major faults in the film. I think the picture hinges almost entirely on the performance of the lead acttress, and I can see why some moviegoers might not be instantly smitten with her. However, I think that's part of what makes the film work. It takes some work on the audiences part to root for this character, but once you make that decision you're in for an entertaining ride.
