Storyline

Five loosely intertwined stories of the emotional issues facing individual middle-aged Angelenas are presented. In "This Is Dr. Keener", physician Elaine Keener is spending the day taking care of her invalid mother at home on the nurse's day off. Elaine, a scientist, seeks confirmation on what may be a turning point issue in her life by an unconventional means, namely a tarot card reading. Although the news Elaine receives through the reading is a largely accurate assessment of her current life, it is the news about that crossroads issue that takes her somewhat aback. In "Fantasies About Rebecca", thirty-nine year old Rebecca Waynon is outwardly in control of her life, from her job as a bank manager to her personal long term relationship with older Robert. A homeless woman named Nancy who hangs around outside the bank seems to have a clearer picture of what is truly happening with Rebecca than Rebecca herself, as is witnessed by Rebecca's ultimate reaction to an action in dealing with...

Really Connecting or Lack There Of?
31 July 2010 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

It's really difficult to determine if these brief snippets of vignettes of various women really adequately depict, present a whole encompassing experience that captures the sense of connecting or the lack there of. Perhaps if there were four instead of five women much like the frenzy attempt in BABEL (2006), the comprehension and the depth of the experience seems to be almost scattered and strength and limited. The music, the silent pauses, the slice of life emotional sound bites do seem to prick and penetrate in both happiness, sadness, frankness, and at times shocking embarrassment. The music is creatively different and intriguingly beautiful while there pieces of dialogue that cut and dazzle, yet for all of it there seems like the stories are somehow diminished, thinned, and somewhat missing even though each story is able to impart a piece of itself with love and pain and hope.
