Storyline

High school is over, and everybody in the small town just up the Hudson from New York City where Jim lives has made plans and moved on everybody except Jim. While his buddies head off to one Ivy League college or another, Jim rejects their upwardly-mobile choices and takes a job driving for the local cab company instead, which allows him plenty of free time to hang out, drink with the locals at John's Bar & Grill, and think back on the love affair with a married woman that, for the exquisite moment it lasted, brought passion and meaning to his life. Drawing partially on events from his own life, first time writer/director Peter Callahan tells a poignant and sometimes hilarious story about what happens when life moves on and you're not quite ready to move with it.

A beautifully realized story of a young man stuck in a small town
29 October 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Los Angeles film festival in April, and I really must say it's probably the best movie I've seen in the last year or two. I couldn't stop thinking about it for days afterwards. The characters are so distinctive and memorable, the cinematography is lovely, and the music is really fine. If you come across this film, definitely check it out. If you've ever lived a small town, you can really relate to the film's themes, and even though it's a drama, it's really hilarious at times too. I definitely recommend it.
