A charming fable
27 November 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews



A slyly deceptive film about a midwestern widow who journeys to New York to visit her daughter who lives in the East Village across from the Satan's Disciples' (a fictional biker gang) headquarters. The short is surprisingly rich, both poignant and funny at the same time. Helen Stenborg delivers a beautifully nuanced performance, one that could have easily slipped into the mawkish, but never does. The writing, direction, and cinematography are highly accomplished for a so-called student film. It is a rare balancing act that weaves fantasy and reality and dream into multi-layered whole. Eminently deserving of the 2000 Oscar.
