After losing her partner, a travel writer places a personals ad in the newspaper in search of a travel companion to Italy. She interviews several interesting characters, with their own stories, at a coffee shop. She also meets the waitress, a graduate student, who keeps serving her coffee. We also meet the writer's quirky sister who urges her to open her heart. Just before the writer and the waitress leave for the airport, they both realize their mutual love of writing as well as discovering one is on her way to Italy while the other is on her way to Little Italy. They agree to meet up for coffee in the future. Written by ketch11-22

What will she choose? Good performances

I saw this as part a collection of lesbian shorts, and it came off pretty well. It concerns a (lesbian) somewhat uptight travel writer whose traditional travel companion has died of cancer. She decides to take a classified ad to find a replacement during her trip to Italy.

The movie takes place in a lesbian friendly cafe where she is meeting the person she picked. Kristen Davis plays the writer's sister and turns in a playful performance. While at the cafe, the writer meets up with a graduate student/waitress and there is clearly some chemistry. We wonder if it will lead anywhere.

A bit of the narration is a bit much, but overall, I enjoyed it. The performances especially make the movie.
