Hysterical comedy about an old, farm woman in New York
27 February 2000 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is the first film by director Barbara Schrock, and it is a great offering. This short is nominated for an Oscar this year in the best live action film short category.

The plot is pretty simple, but in the end, it is very unique. Basically, a widow from Sioux Falls, SD goes to visit her daughter in New York's East Village. When she first arrives, she is very scared, and this feeling is not helped by the fact that her daughter lives across the street from the headquarters of a large motorcycle gang, The Satan's Disciples! She is overcome with questions like, "Is it safe?" and "What do they do over there?"

In the end, it gives plenty of laughs and just enough sympathy and drama to keep everybody amused. If you get a chance to see this movie, don't pass it up.--9/10
