Jo is a dancer who became pregnant and Jessie is a woman fighting to survive in Hollywood. The link between them is the fact that they dance at Blue Iguana, a strip-club managed by Eddie. Their personal dramas are the theme of this movie. Written by

Sheila Kelley originally conceived the idea for this film. It was supposed to be a story about incest between her character and the character played by Elias Koteas. Once the other actresses started improvising, it became more of an ensemble piece. See more »

A film worth seeing for its process even more than its content
This film was produced through an improv workshop technique. And, since each actor created their own character and contributed to the plot, the results show. The energy of this film crackles off the screen. Since each actor knows their character's history better than anyone else it is impossible for someone to misplay their role. The feeling from this film is incredible and I strongly recommend everyone to see it if only to encourage more films of this type being made.
The story, it should also be noted, is very good. It's one of the best ensemble pieces I have seen in 2000.
