Sweet & Unusual
27 May 2004 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. Is it a masterpiece? No. But it's unpredictable, well directed and the acting is excellent.

I rented it because I love Rhys Ifans, and I think Eileen Walsh is truly one of the best actresses I've seen in a while (she stole Magdalene Sisters). I didn't regret the rental, and even kept it for my husband to see too. He felt the same way. Try to see this if you can. It's a great little sleeper!

It's about a girl who's father dies while she's being born, which naturally affects her mother in a profound way, causing her to become agoraphobic. Janice grows up trying to help her mother, and finally decides to get her a unique therapy. The problem is she must LEAVE her mother and go to the big city in order to save enough cash for the therapy. Sounds dark and sad, but it's not. Janice has a wild imagination and a knack for losing jobs. She's also got a great attitude. Rhys plays a unique role - is he a good guy or a bad guy? You have to figure it out!
