Storyline

Jack, a 25 year old Jersey guy is scared... of moving out of his parents house...of marrying his girlfriend of seven years... of spending his life working in the nursing home... of eighty year old Helen with whom he engages in a daily battle not to pull the fire alarm. On a rare trip into the "foreign" territory of New York City, Jack and his pal Merle talk their way into a hip downtown club. Wearing his best plaid shirt he fails to impress anyone, except a glamorous model, who happens to think taking care of old people is just about the nicest thing a person could do for a living. Totally smitten by her attention, Jack embraces her world. He feels guilty about cheating on his girlfriend, but he looks so good in his new Valentino suit! His buddies in the nursing home, impressed by Jack's ballet of deceit and self discovery, live vicariously through him. He's got to make a choice. But something's not right... as he discusses this new turn of events with his father, he realizes there is... Written by Elia Zois

A great inde film about life, love and the other side of the Hudson river
23 April 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I'm from Europe and remember moving to the City (at 25 about the same age as the lead character Jack is in the movie). Jack is tempted as was I, to try to fit in, to change who you are for a ticket into the more colorful life the NYC fashion scene provides.

Jack can opt to live that life or he can marry his high school sweetheart. If only the decision where that simple. Deciding to marry his girlfriend of seven years also means accepting the life that his father has lived and his father's father has lived. There are no decisions for him to make in that life (you marry, you buy a house, you pay your mortgage, you have kids, you die) but as director Elia Zois suggests, maybe having too many options is over-rated? This movie will make you think.

The photography is superb. The story line is fast passed. It's a perfect date movie. Go see it, you'll love it.
